In a Kindermusik class, miming and singing “Wheels on the Bus” may seem like child’s play, but it’s actually helping a child develop better coordination and language skills.
In a Kindermusik class, parents and their children—ages newborn to 7 years old—sing, dance and make music together to develop better learning skills for the child. Parents also learn more about the developmental process and benefits by activities in class.
Studies continue to show that music has a positive impact on a child’s ability to learn. Not only in terms of preschool readiness, but making and responding to music can help a child use scissors, kick a ball, as well as have a positive impact on a child’s sense of self-esteem and self-expression.
“For a child, being ready for preschool is about feeling comfortable with yourself,” says Carol Penney, Kindermusik International’s Director of Education . “Then they have the confidence to leave mom and dad at home and get involved with what’s going on in preschool.”
Kindermusik classes are designed by music and early childhood educators. Activities are based on new and proven research that music making music can stimulate every area in the child’s development:
- Stimulate a love of diverse styles of music—varied musical exposure leads to language proficiency and spatial-temporal reasoning, which is the foundation for engineering and science.
- Foster creativity using music, dance, drama—children use creative thinking skills in pretend play, enhancing their ability to think in different ways.
- Teaches parents about child development—parents are the child’s first teacher. Kindermusik classes help parents understand the child development process by explaining developmental benefits of each class activity and offering activities they can do together at home.
