One of my strongest impressions of Kindermusik’s work is the varity of musical selections for children. The selections are of high quality and of considerable diversity, such that children can listen and respond to the music of Bach, Mozart, contemporary composers, and cultural traditions around the globe. Kindermusik understands that children deserve opportunities to know a palette of musical colours, and thus through the programs provide windows to the world of people and their artistic expressions. This rainbow of musical colours is the stuff that surrounds children through their Kindermusik experience, so that their listening, movement, singing, and playing possibilities are grounded in history and across cultures. These musical beginnings set children straight for a lifetime of well-considered choices in their musical and cultural valuing.
