About Kindermusik International

Taught around the globe by over 5,000 music educators, Kindermusik incorporates the most current research on early childhood development into every class.  

Kindermusik classes provide families a special place for learning and connecting with other parents, babies and kids through music and movement. In a social setting, we dance and move, sing and chant, play instruments and games, and make friends. 

High quality, professionally created CDs with all the beautiful recordings from class are included with enrollment and given out every month.  

You will also receive a subscription to Kindermusik's educational website where you can access music and activity ideas from your phone, computer or device at anytime!


What you’ll experience each week:

Variety of music. 

Musical diversity builds strong neural networks in a child’s developing brain which is why each Kindermusik unit contains an array of musical styles, sounds, and genres.


Instrument play. 

Age-appropriate exploration with real instruments enhances a sense of rhythm and steady beat, develops a keen awareness of the distinguishing qualities of sound, and encourages spontaneity and creativity.



A room full of family and friends dancing together helps a little body develop the muscle strength needed at first to crawl and walk and then to jump and march.  All children are completely free to move about the room at anytime during class and this freedom helps a little heart to fall in love with the sheer joy of responding physically to music.


Together time. 

Kindermusik is the essence of “quality time”.  We provide you a place to create special memories, nurture the growing bond you share, and gain new insights into your child’s development. 


Sign language for early communication

You will learn American Sign Language ASL in every class and techniques on how to use sign language every day to enhance your child’s language development.


Learning continues at home. 

With your CDs and online subscription, the learning continues all week long with your child’s best teacher—you!
