Research shows...

Based on current research, Kindermusik uses music as the vehicle for learning during the first seven years of a child’s life. However, the benefits of music extend well beyond those early years.

Learning through music can set a child up for success in school and in life, according to childhood development experts, researchers, and scientists.

The Benefits of Kindermusik for Children, including those with Special Needs

  • Benefits of a Kindermusik music class also apply to children with disabilities or other special needs
  • Creativity extended
  • Increased confidence and resilience
  • Early Literacy and Language Development: steady beat, rhythm, and pitch increase phonological awareness due to similarities in brain functioning between music and language. 
  • Social-Emotional Skills: classes teach sharing, turn-taking, cooperation, paying attention, and healthy social interaction with peers and adults. 
  • Cognitive Skills: musical learning provides gains in abstract reasoning, spatial and temporal reasoning, and self-control.
  • Physical Skills: playing instruments & movement to music helps children practice both fine- and gross-motor skills.
  • Music Skills: Kindermusik prepares children for formal music lessons. In class, children experience steady beat, playing instruments together leading to ensemble skills, learning rhythm patterns, support of vocal development.
  • At Home Materials: Enrolled families are provided access to class songs and activities that can be used through the week between classes. This extends the learning opportunities as well as reinforcing class time learning.
  • Children LOVE COMING TO CLASSES; they are so much FUN!
