Why Trust Us & Kindermusik
We at LessonsAndSongs.com® are proud to offer developmentally-appropriate Kindermusik® Classes for your infant, baby, toddler, preschooler or big kid. Our unique and fun-filled approach in the classroom not only gives your child the best musical introduction, but also stimulates and fosters social, emotional, language, literacy, physical and cognitive development.
Our curriculum, based on the principals of Kodaly, Suzuki, and Orff, is taught by some of the best Educators – among the 5000+ Licensed Educators worldwide. Our Educators have all completed rigorous training in order to earn their Kindermusik license, which they maintain by completing ongoing training each year. They're steeped in child development and music concepts. They learn how music and movement contribute to children's growth, and how they can facilitate the process. They learn how to tap into different learning styles and how to reach all kinds of children: infants and older children, the shy and the outgoing, as well as children with cognitive or physical limitations.

JOY, FUN AND LEARNING WHICH MUSIC BRINGS TO LIFE!
SINGING fosters the development of child’s most important instrument - the voice - through vocal exploration, songs, and chants.
MOVING develops body awareness, coordination, and spatial relationships through synchronized 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.
PATTERNING boosts child’s ability to think musically through the integration of basic rhythmic and tonal language.
LISTENING cultivates child’s heightened attentiveness to sound discrimination.
EXPLORING timbre, dynamics, tempo, and pitch lays the foundation for conceptualization of the elements of music.
