Welcome to ~ABC Music & Me~ Music and Learning Program for Children

Early childhood is a wonderful window of opportunity for music learning. Music activities are not just fun - they are also a perfect way to help children learn and grow. The ABC Music & Me music learning program for young children, created by Kindermusik International, is more than a music class. It is a carefully planned curriculum that celebrates the importance of music and movement to the development of young children.
Music & early childhood are such a natural pair. What a perfect time to catch a child's innate love of music, pair it with fun and educational activities, and build a foundation for a lifetime of musical learning. KI has developed a developmentally appropriate music curriculum that celebrates the importance of music, introduces music's basic "language," and nurtures those rhythmic, pattern-loving musical seeds that are naturally planted in every child's brain.
** Music stimulates learning, , lowers stress, and advances memory, attention, and brain development.
*Combining music with movement creates new learning pathways in the brain while enhancing motor skills and muscle development.
**ABC Music & Me combines structure with flexibility to enable children of all temperments to flourish. A quiet child is allowed to observe and absorb, while a highly active child's energy can be funneled into a creative and positive experience.
**Abc Music & Me includes a storytime in every class, encouraging early literacy development and skills such as listening, sequencing, empathy, and anticipation.
**Gathering in a group to sing and play is a positive way to lower inhibitions, build self -esteem, and foster a sense of inclusion. Group learning also helps children develop social skills such as turn-taking and cooperation.

We'll use everyday objects such as plastic cups and aluminum pie pans, along with voices and a variety of musical instruments, to accompany stories and play along to music. Children will learn the term timbre and will explore the many different sound qualities at their fingertips and on the keyboard. We'll hum a familiar tune, walk through the jungle like an elephant, and sail away on an adventure in this unit's story, If I had a Big Blue Boat.
