SINGING fosters the development of your child’s most important instrument, the voice, through vocal exploration, songs, and chants.
MOVING develops body awareness, coordination, and spatial relationships through synchronised movement, creative movement, and simple dances.
PLAYING introduces a variety of musical timbres with percussion instruments such as rhythm sticks, jingle bells, drums, resonator bars, and simple instruments your child creates at home.
CREATING stimulates your child’s imagination and encourages new exploration with sound and movement.

LISTENING cultivates your child’s heightened attentiveness to sound discrimination.
EXPLORING timbre, dynamics, tempo, and pitch lays the foundation for conceptualisation of the elements of music.
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's curriculum is built on this research.
When young children are consistently engaged by music in an age-appropriate, socially accepting environment, they benefit at many levels:
- Early Literacy. They gain the phonological processing, spoken language, and comprehension skills that are the foundation of reading.
- Quantitative. They build the spatial-temporal and reasoning skills required for maths, science, and engineering.
- Social-Emotional. They develop social and emotional skills that are essential for school readiness—like the ability to regulate their responses and relate to others in complex ways.
- Physical. By moving and dancing to music and playing simple instruments, children improve their gross and fine motor skills. Activities that encourage freedom within a fun and friendly structure spark their creativity.
- Creative. Activities that encourage freedom within a fun and friendly structure spark children's creativity and provides inspiration.
And of course, they develop a lifelong love of music.
