Kindermusik is a program for children birth to age 7 and their families that combines the power of music with opportunities for listening, practicing social skills, and learning together. The very first Kindermusik class was held in 1978, after musician and educator, Dan Pratt, encountered a successful German music program that empowered young children. Kindermusik encourages creative expression and helps children hit developmental milestones. In each class there are many opportunities to learn to share, take turns, move around, and sit quietly. Families are able to participate together and practice the music at home, further enhancing their child's musical experience. The Kindermusik program here in Grants Pass Oregon is offered at Music4Kids in the downtown area. You can find out more here Kindermusik at

Music is powerful! And boy do you see that when you step into a Kindermusik class. You see kids slowly open up and transform as the music opens them up to a whole new world. Music can give families a deeper bond and shared joyful experiences as you show your children the beauty of song, instruments, and dance. Each class is tailored to the specific age group with developmentally appropriate activities and lessons that immerse the children in new vocabulary, stories, and songs that follow a certain theme.

The benefits of Kindermusik extend far beyond the joy of making music. Research has shown that children who participate in early music programs demonstrate improved cognitive skills, enhanced motor development, better social interaction, and increased school readiness. But it doesn't stop there—Kindermusik is a wonderful opportunity for family bonding as well.

Through shared musical experiences, parents and children form a deep connection and create cherished memories together. Kindermusik classes at Music4Kids offer families a space to bond, learn, and grow together, strengthening the parent-child relationship while building a foundation of musical appreciation that will last a lifetime.

My family had the opportunity to participate in Kindermusik when my son was little, and I was able to see firsthand the benefits of early music education. My son's love of music has continued to grow and develop. But Kindermusik gave him some of his first experiences, a taste of the beautiful and vast world of music that he continues to enjoy today. He still hums the Kindermusik songs. The sense of rhythm that Kindermusik gave him has only gotten stronger. And boy does he love to share music with others! This is truly a program that I would recommend for any family with little ones. Come sing and play and let music transform your world!
