The benefits of music on children’s growth, development, confidence, family engagement, and school-readiness skills continue to gain the interest of researchers. Below, find a library of research studies that have been conducted on how music education—and Kindermusik programs specifically—support children’s development and skill-building.
Note: At the time several of these studies were conducted, the Kindermusik@School program was called ABC Music & Me.
IMPROVING STUDENT LANGUAGE AND LITERACY SKILLS
Abstract: Students who received ABC Music & Me instruction showed significantly larger gains (32% more improvement) on the PALS test than did students who did not receive ABC Music & Me instruction, indicating that the program successfully boosts preschoolers’ language and literacy skills.
