Kindermusik is an early childhood music and movement program, founded over 30 years ago. The Kindermusik International Creative Team has created the Kindermusik curriculum to be taught only by Licensed Kindermusik Educators. The purpose of Kindermusik is to enhance total child development through exploratory musical activities. While activities vary by age range, they include singing, listening, vocal and rhythmic play, dancing, chanting, bouncing, exploring simple percussion instruments, and experiencing a wide variety of musical examples, including folk songs, classical music, multicultural songs, jazz, and music original to Kindermusik. Additionally, Kindermusik classes always include a set of high quality materials including CD's, books, instruments, home activity guides and more to help you continue your musical experience at home.
Kindermusik Foundations of Learning help you understand the ways that Kindermusik musical activities impact all areas of child development. Activities focus on six major areas:
Amy Linville - Welcome to Kindermusik with Little Maestros at West Music Marion! I have experienced first hand the joy music can bring to children through my 14 years as a Kindermusik educator, my 20+ years experience teaching piano and time spent conducting music therapy sessions with regular education and special needs preschoolers. I experience that same joy regularly with my own 3 children. I have a BA in Music & Piano Pedagogy from Mount Mercy College and a Music Therapy degree from The University of Iowa. As a Kindermusik Educator, I strongly agree with Kindermusik International that, "every child is musical, every parent is the child's most important teacher, and the home is the most important place for learning to take root and grow." In the Little Maestros classroom, parents will share in their children's development through participation and the joy of music.
