Why are the At Home Materials important?

Family involvement in your child's learning is a fundamental cornerstone of the Kindermusik philosophy. We believe that the parent is a child's most important teacher (not the classroom educator), and the home is the most important place for a child's learning to take root and grow. This is why the At Home Materials become an integral part of the Kindermusik experience.

It is not uncommon for a child to attend for several weeks before feeling comfortable in class. What a child is absorbing in class is often evidenced in the comfort of the home environment rather than in a certain level of participation in class. The understanding and consistency of the parent in the class and at home are the key to facilitating musical learning and growth.

You and your child will benefit enormously from the Kindermusik experience, if you make active use of your At Home Materials. Reinforcement and enjoyment of the Kindermusik materials make all the difference in a child's comfort and security in the classroom.

Music should not be limited to 45 minutes a week; it could be 45 minutes a day! The activities practiced in class are designed to give parents ideas, to make playtime at home more purposeful. As Kindermusik becomes integrated into the family's daily life, the cost of tuition and materials become spread over many, many hours during the week, decreasing the “cost per hour spent” and increasing the value of the program.
