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.

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 have continued to make improvement to Kindermusik's programmes and products. We bring together experts in music, education and child development to examine emerging research and develop new curricula and training programmes, books and music, engaging instruments and activities, and much more.
