Updated: May 31

Physical Books&instruments&More, Digital (computer & App), Arts & Crafts

For a limited time... Downloading! Think about donating old favorites.

An important part of the #kindermusikprocess is using Kindermusik materials and techniques outside of class- AtHome. Everyone who registers for any Kindermusik activity has access to materials coordinated to that activity/class/theme. Remember we have physical and digital AtHome materials. Below is how to access them...

1: creating an account

2: welcome, account info, what’s there in your account

3: AtHome digital material access & functions through internet from any electronic device

4: Limited Time Offer!! Functions specific to computer- downloading & print outs

5: Kindermusik App- it’s functions and how to link it to your account

6: AtHome physical materials; studio provided library and arts&crafts- donations needed

Scroll to what you need info on....

**2022 Update** Log in will stay the same. However what will be available will be changing... they will be updating materials, streamlining access, more streaming of developmentally focus material while registered, and there is a limited time offer for current & past families to download before the changes happen!

Every registered family gets digital materials. Each family can access these materials and the family’s registration information from any device with internet access. There is also an app (see #5 below), computer resources (see #4), and physical material options (see #6).

#1: Create an account to access digital materials & registration info. This can be done from any electronic device with internet access.

it’s quick and easy to access from any device with internet access BUT we do suggest setting it up from a computer

* Go to my.kindermusik.com

* Enter the email you provided the studio. * If you haven’t logged in before Click “create an account” (circled in red on picture below) and answer the questions

OR if you have already created an account enter your password (if you can’t remember your password there is a reminder system or you can contact me or Kindermusik).

* Click the purple “Log In“ to get in (pictures below for reference)...

#2: Welcome, Account info, What’s There.

Although you can access this with any device with internet access it’s easiest through computer or tablet.

On the welcome page you’ll see Across the top...

* “Home” which will list the Levels you have received; * “Online Activities” which has a list of received themes from those levels that coordinate with your classes; * “Albums” which allows you to redeem album codes from download cards, special events, and then lists the albums & music you’ve received (audio only);

* “My Account“ which includes your basic registration info. This is also where you can change that information if needed.

Pre July31,2022: you Access your AtHome materials by picking the level, then the theme of your choice/class. This can be accessed from the home page or from the “Online Activities” tab.

Each class has a developmental range which correlates to a Level. So if you are in a class with 2-4 year olds you may receive Levels 2 or/& 3. Also if you have More than one child you May (depending on how you registered) receive materials for each child’s appropriate Level. Like a Level 3 for your toddler and then a Level Foundations for your baby.

Post Aug1st,2022: you will be taken directly to your child's developmental Level or class where all Kindermusik's whole library for that Level/class will be available while you are registered.

#3: AtHome digital material access & functions- again best accessed with computer or tablet.

Each level has themes. You pick a particular theme in a level to get to a page/file where you can pick functions & activities.

On the theme page you will see...

* preferred language tab (located at the very top),

* audio player button with access to coordinating album (should work from any device with internet access)

* also many activities have a video that can be live streamed ( device that has internet access)

* Activities are located near bottom of page in rectangular buttons. Each activity has parent information (guidance & instructions), then either music or video

Activities will include...

*a book (which you can read yourself or set to read to you), *learning games, *making crafts or recipe, *videos of field trips

*sensory exploration and more

**Limited Time option available till July 31, 2022. Download button with access to music, activities, story, lyrics (works best on the computer- more on this below in #4),

Limited Time Offer

#4 Down load Center button- for computer access and print outs

If you have a computer the download button has some very helpful functions.

*music: you can download the file onto your computer then place it in your computer music player, on your cloud account/library, on a memory stick, even burn your own CD (if you have that ability & hardware- read/write CD).

*Activities: you can down load a pdf with activity sheets (like the one’s available in the physical books). Age appropriate games, coloring, etc for your child and directions/instructions for caregivers on how to incorporate the ideas into play.

*story: a pdf with the story which can be download to your computer for use OR can be printed out onto your paper (again if you have that ability & hardware - printer)

*lyrics: a pdf with the words written out for many of the songs on the coordinating album (availability does depend on the licensing for the particular song).

Another option for downloading is play.kindermusik.com This site is for any download cards you have and there you can download past special classes and/or (depending on card) any favorites using your Kindermusik download cards until December 2022. APP: another way to access music, book (books added in spring of 22), & videos digitally is the app...

#5: Kindermusik’s App

Kindermusik’s app is free and available in Apple’s App Store and Google Play. However if you want to have access to your class music or your redeemed downloads you must log in...

*go to App Store and down load Kindermusik app;

*open app, click on 3 lines (seen in red circle of pic);

*from menu pick log in- type in email & password from account (as created from above #1 instructions)

After you are logged in you can access limited account information, class music, use functions with the class music.

**Functions in menu/three lines (circled in red on pic)... includes log in/out, KI’s mode, dark mode, find a class/studio, about KI, user profile/account info, Play Along (digital instruments), Make Your Own Music (recording)

**Quick access to “Play Along” is the 🎵 (circled in green on pic). This function allow for playing digital representations of Kindermusik instruments. They can be played alone or along with any music played in the app. And you can record your compositions or improvisations using “Make Your Own Music” from the three lines.

**Bottom bar (circled in blue on pic)

*”Home” where music is organized by class/album

*”Themes” where music is organized by general subject/theme

*”Library“ where all music is listed (by album, your own play lists, search by)

*”Videos” for activity and info videos

AS of MARCH 2022 Kindermusik

*”Books” has been added to the bottom bar- available on the APP too

More exciting news** as we move towards 2023 Kindermusik will begin to add new, more, updated content to the app.

AS of AUG 2022 Kindermusik will be providing free with any class, unlimited streaming from their mobile & computer platforms. Families will be able to stream all the content available for their child's currently registered Level/class- all music playlists, books, videos for the Level for which you are attending/registered. I will have an option for those who take a break from or pause in-person classes- I will have available a digital access only option at a reduced price (will include Kindermusik's digital access for a Level plus access to me through zoom).

#6: AtHome physical materials

I can order a variety of Kindermusik physical books, instruments, activity books, totes.

*If you want physical copies of the digital, you can either download on to your computer or I can order a professional copy from KI. I can also order from KI Instruments shown on app. *There are also separate physical only materials including activity books, play sets, and instruments/equipment.

I have a limited supply in stock immediately available and most others can be ordered with a month’s notice (sometimes shorter). *contact me personally to order physical materials. Look for seasonal posts for our seasonal focus and what i'll likely have in stock.

**2022 note: Home materials are being updated too with some small content tweeks & looks for your modern world. Also because of a variety of supply and demand changes some materials will be phased out. As supplies last will include... CD’s, activity/learning play sets, some tote bags, some instruments. DON'T DESPAIR if your favorites are on the phasing out list, because I am setting up a library of old favorites! I will have CD's, books, playsets. DONATIONS NEEDED- to make sure i have plenty to go around, as you clean out/age out/move on, think about donating to my library!!

Specific to my studio I also have craft activity sets. Some of these ideas & sets are from Kindermusik International and others I have personally developed or sourced.
