    Nearly 2 years ago my 2 sons started Kindermusik with no prior knowledge of music. One of my sons had a diagnosis of Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder and moderate-severe learning disability and had just started to communicate one on one at home but 'lost' this ability in a group, however small. Becca was so patient with our boys and always optimistic regarding Joshua's (my son with autism) potential. 2 years later and not only has my eldest son been selected to learn the flute based on his musical ability, but we have discovered that Joshua has perfect pitch, as well as the confidence to overcome his difficulties to interact with and befriend the other children in the class, and to pursue his interest in music and even to excel at it! He is now learning the piano, and experiments musically with his instruments (glockenspiel and dulcimer), changing keys and trying out new tunes with ease. Music is now his chosen way to de-stress after school, bringing all his thinking and senses back into line it seems. I believe at Kindermusic Becca has given my boys a tool for life and delight that our house is now filled with music. Thank you Becca.:)

    Very impressed with the content of the 'Young child' course and the amount of musical knowledge my daughter has gained despite her young age and only one semester of class so far!

    Both my daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed kindermusik. Not only is it a full musical curriculum, It really helped her speech, her little singing voice, her memory and her confidence. I cannot praise it enough.

About Kinermusik International:

The Experts:

 "Kindermusik provides the sound nutrition to improve movement, listening, and expression in young children. Through activities and music making, skills for parents and children alike create inroads for the great orchestration of a family's hearts, minds, and bodies."
     -Don Campbell World-renowned authority on the transformative power of listening and music, and author of The Mozart Effect® for Children

"Kindermusik is elegant in its integrated approach to a child's development. Physiologically, touch, movement, rhythm and sound are the keystones to developing a healthy vestibular system and optimizing nervous system and brain growth. The importance of having families working together, where everyone benefits from the sense of belonging, gets directly at the heart of what we, as a society, are needing at this time to raise healthy, loving children and ensure a world of peace. All of this is provided in the Kindermusik programme."
     -Carla Hannaford, Ph.D. Biologist, educator and author of Smart Moves: Why Learning Is Not All in Your Head and The Dominance Factor

"One of my strongest impressions of Kindermusik's work is the variety of musical selections that are there for children. The selections are of high quality and of considerable diversity, such that children can listen and respond to the music of Bach, Mozart, contemporary composers and cultural traditions around the globe. Kindermusik understands that children deserve opportunities to know a palette of musical colors, and thus through the programme provide windows to the world of people and their artistic expressions. This rainbow of musical colours is the stuff that surrounds children through their Kindermusik training, so that their listening, movement, singing and playing possibilities are grounded in history and across cultures. These musical beginnings set children straight for a lifetime of well-considered choices in their musical and cultural valuing."

Lessons from the World


The Parents:

Our daughter, Kayla, loves her Kindermusik Our Time class! I just can't say enough about this class and the whole idea behind Kindermusik. The At Home Materials are wonderful—Kayla especially loves the Fiddle Sticks book, This Little Piggy Played the Fiddle, and all of the animal songs! After doing the "roll over" activity in class and then playing the music at home, Kayla knew exactly what to do! I tell everyone I know about Kindermusik. Keep up the good work!
     -Lorena Finnerty, mother of Kayla, age 1½ years.

"I credit Kindermusik for teaching Ben how to pack away and take turns with toys since it's a routine in our class. I am excited for him to try their other programs in the future."
