Kindermusik's world-wide reputation is rooted in a history that spans nearly half a century.
In the late 1960s, educational experts in Germany developed a music and movement curriculum for kindergarten children. They drew on the work of esteemed musicians and educators from Europe and Asia, including Shinichi Suzuki, Maria Montessori, and Carl Orff.
By the mid 1970s, the program was ready for prime time. Two of the original creators introduced it to the U.S., and in 1978 the company Kindermusik was founded. A few years later it expanded into Canada, and from there it spread around the world. Kindermusik has been enjoyed by over 1 million families in more than 60 countries.
Since the beginning, we've continued to make improvements to Kindermusik's programs and products. We bring together experts in music, education, and child development to examine emerging research and develop new curricula and training programs, award-winning books and music, engaging instruments and activities, and much more. That's especially important now, when science is opening new avenues to understanding the Benefits of Music.
