FAQ

Everything you wanted to know about Kindermusik University Training...

  • What's the difference between a course and a workshop?

    A Kindermusik workshop provides a 1-hour professional development training on a very specific topic related to early childhood development and music. A Kindermusik course provides approximately 8-10 hours of professional development training on teaching music and movement for specific age groups. Each course starts with our company's philosophies, unlocks (for a limited time) one complete age level of our curriculum, and shows you how age-appropriate read-aloud, instrument play, song, and dance can boost musical learning.

  • What am I certified to do after I complete workshops or courses?

    Both options provide a digital certificate of completion. Kindermusik also offers various resources and materials to help you fully utilize skills learned during training, and infuse music-based learning with the children you serve. Note that you are not certified to "teach Kindermusik" upon receiving your certificate, but the certificate of completion is the first step in becoming a Kindermusik Accredited Educator.

  • Do trainings include continuing education credits?

    Not at this time. However, please note that many administrators and team leaders will accept certificates of completion for professional development hours, and every workshop and course includes one!

  • How do I become a Kindermusik Accredited Educator for my studio?

    All Kindermusik Accredited Educators must complete at least one level course (like our Level 3 Standard or Premium Course) first before applying to take our Accreditation Exam. Once you complete a course level, you will be prompted with information on how to apply. In addition to written questions, the application includes a video submission as part of our vocal review process. If accepted, you will take the exam, which is one full lesson filmed in its entirety in the level for which you have applied.

  • Do I have to be Kindermusik Accredited to bring Kindermusik curricula to my classroom or learning environment?

    No. You do not have to be Kindermusik Accredited or even a music teacher to offer Kindermusik to the children you serve. Kindermusik offers a Hosted/Audio-Led curricula to assist non-music teachers (or music teachers in schools who need supporting curricula) in providing rich, researched-based music education effectively. It's a perfect solution for those working in schools, childcares, and early intervention or learning centers. Please reach out to our support team via ku@kindermusik.com or 800.628.5687 (Option 3) for more information.

  • Is this training just for teachers? What about home visitors or parents?

    While our level courses are geared toward early music education teachers, our workshops are open to ANYONE who regularly cares for children, instructs them, or works in an early childhood industry.

  • Can I purchase training for someone else?

    Currently, only one training seat can be purchased at a time, and the email used for purchasing that seat will be the one required to log in to your course or workshop. However, if you would like to purchase multiple seats for your group or organization (discounts on group pricing available!), please email us at support@kindermusik.com or call us at 800.628.5687 (Option 3).

  • Do you offer group training?

    Yes! If you would like to purchase multiple seats for your group or organization (discounts on group pricing available!), please email us at support@kindermusik.com or call us at 800.628.5687 (Option 3).
