Paradise Music


Kindermusik is an internationally acclaimed music and movement programme which complements children's development from newborn to 7 years old. Through its  age appropriate activities and high quality materials, such as book, cds and a wide range of instruments, Kindermusik offers a wonderful and complete learning experience.

Daniel Pratt, Kindermusik International's Co-Founder and Chariman Emeritus discovered this early childhood music education programme in the late 1960s. It was translated into English in the late 1970s and Daniel Pratt begun providing training opportunities for music professionals in the United States. It is at that time that Kindermusik started becoming really successful. Currently Kindermusik is being taught in 66 countries with more than 5,000 educators worldwide.

One of Kindermusik's philosophies is that A GOOD BEGINNING NEVER ENDS! With that in mind, each child's innate musical abilities are enhanced through singing, movement, storytelling, instrument playing and group games in a safe environment. Through expert-led guidance, children participate in activities which build up their socio-emotional development, respect their individuality and support their self-expression. What a beautiful way to make their first steps in life!
