WHAT IS KINDERMUSIK?

Kindermusik is music-making with a purpose.
Early introduction to music and movement impacts your child’s brain and body development in a way few other learning methods can. We should know. We’ve been transforming the lives of children, parents, and teachers around the world since 1978.
Science has shown that children of any age learn more when the learning is playful and fun. Kindermusik kids laugh, smile, stomp, play, kick, clap, jump, sing, and dance. But having fun is just the beginning.
Steeped in educational theory, our programs engage the potential found in every child. Through our dynamic classes, in-school programs, and research-based curriculum, we excel at setting a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning.
Our purpose is simple. We’re here to develop young minds and change the world. One child at a time.
Let it begin with Kindermusik®.

  • Together Time -- A Kindermusik class is truly the essence of “quality time,” offering the parent a place to create special memories with their child, gain new insights into their child’s development, and nurture their child’s natural love of music.

The more than 30 songs, 15 dances, and eight different instruments create these unique music activities, designed to reflect the importance of movement in the life of a toddler.

What a Parent and Child Will Experience in Class:

  • Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development -- Children will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead them to discover their potential for beat, rhythm, melody, and ensemble playing.

  • Exploration Time -- Children will love discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds, and movements.
  • Story time and early literacy -- Listening to stories enhances language and speech development and fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning.

  • Movement Activities -- Each class provides various opportunities for movement such as synchronized movement, group dances and circle games, and even expressive movement.
  • Together Time -- Kindermusik is the essence of quality time, allowing parents to make the most of the fleeting toddler years, giving them the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.

SIUE Suzuki Program Presents: Kindermusik with Ellen Singh

Find me on Facebook @ “SIUE Presents Kindermusik”


WHAT ARE KINDERMUSIK PARENTS SAYING

ABOUT THIS PROGRAM?…

“I became familiar with Kindermusik when my younger sister taught it for two years in Bermuda. I was so excited to find out Kindermusik was offered here at SIUE. Ellen is wonderful with the children and so knowledgeable about music and Kindermusik, and so patient with the children. I took my oldest granddaughter (now 5 and taking piano lessons at SIUE) for several years. She absolutely loved it! Now I have my 18-month-old granddaughter in her second semester and my 7 1/2 month old grandson beginning his first semester. The parents love the opportunity for their children. As a mom, Mamo, and professor of education, I know how important music is for children. We sing and dance all the time. Research shows that children who become involved in organized music programs and stay with them do well in school and life. I encourage anyone with children or grandchildren to get them involved in Kindermusik. It is a great way to spend quality time with the kids.” Grandparent – Village & Our Time Class

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Our Saturday morning Kindermusik class has become a special time for my daughter and I to sing, dance and play together.  Now attending our third semester of classes with Ellen, it has been a joy watching my daughter’s development since her first class at 8 months, and now approaching age two!  I have loved seeing her little face light up for class through her every stage!  With Ellen and the fun and engaging curriculum of Kindermusik, I am happy to be fostering in her a love and appreciation for all kinds of music.”  Candice K. – Our Time Class

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"A year ago the "Village" class introduced my son to the art of music. Now that we've started our second semester of the "Our Time" class, it is very obvious how the program has not only developed his love of music, but has also developed his gross/fine motor skills (dancing, clapping, and playing instruments) and social skills (sharing, confidence, and tolerance)! I highly recommend this class to every parent! We love Kindermusik!"  Ellyn K. – Our Time Class

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Both of my daughters have been Kindermusik students and have thoroughly enjoyed each class. Every time we met I could see my girls developing their musicality and having a wonderful time. Miss Ellen is creative, fun-loving, and very organized. And the kindermusik materials are of high quality.  Our family highly recommends signing up for Kindermusik classes!”  Emily K. – Our Time Class

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I recently enrolled my daughter for a second semester in Ellen's Kindermusik Village class. She loves the group setting and happily smiles and giggles as we dance and sing around the room! She has always loved listening to music at home, but through Ellen's class she has learned the steadiness of the beat, anticipation, and familiarity and joy with hearing the songs we play at home and sing each week in class. I highly recommend Ellen's Kindermusik class for socialization, development and simply learning and enjoying music with your little one!”  Andrea B. – Village Class

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Our family is some of Kindermusik's biggest fans! Not only do we look forward to the fun-filled class each week, we love using the at-home materials as part of our everyday routine. I am thrilled we have been able to participate in this program - I can't recommend it enough!”  Sara S. – Our Time Class

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“Our family has enjoyed 6 semesters of Kindermusik with Ellen Singh’s program at SIUE.  Kindermusik has been a great way to bond with our young daughter.  Watching her develop and grow with the curriculum has been a great pleasure.  From the eye contact with a smile while singing her Kindermusik songs when she was 4 months old to now (nearly 3 yrs old) when she brings us her favorite Kindermusik books to read to her.  The parent perspective details that Ellen provides has helped us recognize the advancements she was making even at just a few months old.  It’s amazing to see the children’s cognitive recognition and development that is obtained though the music in the Kindermusik program.  The at home materials are not only lots of fun for the children, but they have become household treasures that will be in our memory books forever.  We are big believers in the program and would encourage any parent to try Kindermusik!”  Rob & Sonyia H. – Village & Our Time Class
