One of the World's Most Powerful Teaching Tools

Designed to work in virtually any educational setting, our research-driven curricula provide a unique and effective way to reach children of all backgrounds, developmental levels, and learning styles. We offer six developmentally appropriate levels for newborns through seven-year-olds, with each activity providing the groundwork for building language, literacy, math and social-emotional skills. The fun and joy inherent in music-making encourages positive teacher-child interactions, and creates an engaging and disciplined classroom routine.

Kindermusik is easy to implement and perfectly complements Pre-K and Kindergarten programs in public schools, private schools, and childcare centers. We even offer solutions for Head Start and Early Head Start, English Language Learning programs, special needs programs, after-school programs and international schools.

How it Works

Our all-inclusive musical activities make it easy for teachers to lead children through playful, interactive, and developmentally appropriate music and movement activities, while incorporating high-quality, safety-tested instruments and manipulatives.

Lesson Plans at a Glance

Our lesson plans are intentional, developed using a tested and repeatable formula. The individual activities within each lesson, such as greetings, storytime, and instrument play, are strategically placed for maximum engagement. The establishment of repetition and rituals allows children to take comfort in knowing what’s coming, encouraging creative participation within the established framework.

Standards

Our curriculum aligns with the established standards for the following high-quality early childhood programs:

  • Common Core State Standards
  • Head Start Standards and Frameworks
  • Early Head Start School Readiness Goals for Infants and Toddlers
  • Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS®)
  • Infant/Toddler Environment Rating Scale (ITERS)
  • Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale (ETERS)

What current schools are saying:

Kindermusik has helped my students find pure joy in music. The curriculum is extraordinary, developmentally appropriate ,engaging, and fun. The program is an essential part of their experience at school. The program has beautifully enhanced the students social experience, movement, and music in a fun and nurturing environment.

- Nicole Vasil
Early Childhood Teacher

Kindermusik has served to “jump start” early literacy and numeracy skill development for these children. The music and movement are irresistible and compelling. Children who were previously unavailable for social interaction and learning readily engage and are soon leading their peers in the routines of the program.
