Kindermusik Univerity

What kind of early music education training do you offer?

Kindermusik University features on-demand, music-based training for all types of early education professionals. From private music studio owners who want to offer our curricula to public school teachers who need new strategies for daily transitions, there’s something for everyone.

Whether you're a teacher, administrator, parent, or all three...life is busy. Our on-demand workshops and courses allow you to start, stop, repeat, and absorb content as it's convenient for you.

Research-Based Strategies

Since 1978, Kindermusik's research-based practices have used the power and joy of music and movement to help educators foster—and little ones maximize—whole-child development.

Actionable Takeaways

What's the point of training without improvement? When you complete a Kindermusik course or workshop, you'll receive practical, action-oriented strategies you can put in place immediately.

How do I teach Kindermusik curricula in my learning space?

Great question. It depends on the type of curricula you want to teach.

If you’re an early education professional without a musical background, we recommend exploring our audio-led classroom curricula kits. No accreditation required!

If you’re a music education professional (who either runs a private studio or teaches for someone else), we recommend getting accredited to teach our instructor-led curricula. Accreditation is by age level, so you must complete each age-specific course and then follow our accreditation process in order to offer those classes.
