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.

In class, your child’s memory and sequence skills will strengthen with stop-and-go activities—all set to the music of Latin America. Tucked into stories and pretend play activities, stop-and-go games help your preschooler control body motions and follow directions on the go. Share the stories, activities, and trivia in your Home Kit and you’ll strengthen self-discipline skills at home, too.
