Follow me to Kindermusik

Music is uniquely human.

Music and language connection

Science is always trying to justify music! Why do we humans need music? This Stanford research shows that people who played musical instruments as children process spoken language faster and more accurately than their non-musical counterparts as adults. suggest that many children who become poor readers have trouble making auditory distinctions. Auditory discrimination is our work and our play in Kindermusik!

Welcome to our Blog.

Hello Friends! We're high-stepping out into the cyberworld! I'm posting a video clip of a tiny taste of what our Kindermusik Partnership Conference was like. Hope you enjoy it. It was surely a wild few days and so much fun. In this video you'll see Benjamin Zander of the Boston Philharmonic give a cello lesson (I recommend his book: The Art of Possibility). and Arthur Josheph gives us a voice lesson! He is the loving voice recalling memories on your Dream Pillow Village CD. And the founder of Kindermusik, Dan Pratt is at the very end of the video. His voice sings Funiculi Funicula in the Hurry Home Little Kittens book of the Imagine That! CD. He also recorded the Tailor and the Mouse on the Fiddle Dee Dee CD which is the theme for next semester Our Time.
And that reminds me: The new semester is online at! You can take care of registering online and have all that out of the way before the holidays send us all into a flurry!
Love from Yvette at Kindermusik of Holland
