Founded in the United States in 1978, Kindermusik is an early childhood education music and movement program for children from infants to 7 years of age (second grade in elementary school). It is based on a Kindergarten music and movement program developed by education experts in Germany in the 1960s. When developing Kindermusik’s curriculum, the original creative team drew on the works of esteemed musicians and educators from Europe and Asia, including Shinichi Suzuki, Maria Montessori, Zoltan Kodaly, Emile Jaques-Dalcoze and Carl Orff. The MVAA will be a licensed, authorized agent of Kindermusik, which will allow us to expand our musical programming to include even younger students, providing creative musical experiences from early childhood to adult, serving music students and lovers of all ages.
