If you’ve ever thought seriously about teaching children’s music-and-movement classes, or have pondered the idea of opening your own music studio, you may feel daunted by all there is to consider, manage, and learn. Maybe you’ve put off your dream of becoming a children’s music teacher in favor of something that seems more realistic or practical. After all, building a business, mastering a curriculum, and figuring out how to teach fun, developmentally appropriate children’s music classes to demanding customers (sure, they’re cute, but kids can be tough!) is no small task.
But that’s where Kindermusik comes in. There are many benefits to partnering with Kindermusik: time-tested, research-based curricula, impressive marketing materials, a hosted website and enrollment system, and a name trusted by parents across the globe. But perhaps the most important factor is our world-class Kindermusik University training. Kindermusik University makes becoming a children’s music teacher easy and fun!
What is Kindermusik University?
Kindermusik University prepares children’s music teachers for success in and out of the classroom. A comprehensive training program that covers early childhood development and pedagogy, as well as marketing and business best practices, Kindermusik University prepares new graduates to provide an exceptional educational experience while also giving them the knowledge they need to support a thriving business.

How does Kindermusik University work?
So how do we do it? How do we set you up for this kind of success and fulfillment? With a thoughtfully developed syllabus, a personal mentorship program, and a lot of peer support and camaraderie. When you enroll in Kindermusik University, you’ll begin twelve weeks of online training, during which time you’ll learn new teaching strategies, research your community, and create a sustainable business plan, all under the guidance of your own personal Kindermusik University coach. Next, you’ll meet in person with fellow educators for three days of intensive training, demo classes, stimulating group discussions, and sessions on a variety of topics. At Kindermusik, we believe a serious business can still be serious fun, so there’s always lots of singing, dancing, and playing.
What happens after Kindermusik University?
After completing a four-week practicum (student teaching class), you’ll be ready to begin teaching Kindermusik, build your own successful business, and impact children’s lives in ways you can’t even imagine. But the learning and support don’t stop there. We’re completely dedicated to your success and provide continuing professional development and customer support, so you’ll always have access to the tools you need to grow your business.
