Psychologists, neuroscientists, and experts in early childhood development have demonstrated that music does more for children than bring them joy; it helps their brain cells make the connections needed for virtually every kind of intelligence.
Kindermusik International is the world's leading provider of music and movement programmes for young children, enjoyed by over 1 million families in more than 70 countries. Based on the principals of Kodaly, Suzuki, and Orff, the curriculum is taught through developmentally-specific music classes for children starting from newborn onwards.
The Kindermusik programme for ages 0-2 offers a sensory rich environment, complete with music, movement and fun to create and strengthen neural pathways. Each class touches on every learning domain while creating special bonding moments. You’ll hear lots of sweet coo’s and goo’s before your baby’s first words, and Kindermusik activities will help develop your baby’s language skills through vocalisation in response to music, hearing his name in songs, and exploring sounds with his own voice. Simple musical play activities support your baby’s brain development by locating sounds though instrument and object play and feeling a steady beat.
For toddlers aged 2-3, the programme recognises that children are on the edge of verbal explosion and gives lots of opportunities to practice and develop those budding language skills. Singing and vocal play along with story time, chants, and finger play all help stimulate language development in a fun and pressure-free way. Toddlers really thrive most with your guidance and helping hand, so Kindermusik allows plenty of room for them to explore, to initiate their own ideas, and to respond in their own ways, while your active participation provides the security your child needs. As you play instruments, sing, and dance, you’ll uncover an engaging musical world while building your toddler’s conﬁdence, self-control, and early language skills.
Babies and toddlers are delighted by music, and there’s no better time than in these early years to inspire what will become a lifelong love for music. From drumming to singing to dancing together, you’ll love how Kindermusik inspires your daily routine and strengthens the bond you share.
