Musical Children in the Making

Why Kidstunes?

Benefits of Early Childhood Music and Movement

Kidstunes knows from many years of experience and research in this field the wonderful benefits of music instruction at an early age. Studies undeniably prove these experiences enhance spatial reasoning skills, which are critical for higher brain function and success in math and science. Early musical involvement promotes language development, fine and gross motor coordination, social behavior and interactions, self-expression and symbolic thinking. In addition, music students demonstrate an increased ability to learn and retain new information quicker and easier.


Our developmentally appropriate, flexible and innovative curriculum exposes children to the joys of music by

  • allowing them to become an active participant in the creation of music
  • encouraging them to attain a sense of confidence in their musical achievements
  • guiding them to express themselves through music and movement.
