Updated: Dec 22, 2022
This is an update As of August 1st 2022
Kindermusik streaming will now be linked to current enrollments. There will be “best of albums” allotted for past enrollments and physical materials are still available.
Please let me know if you find any changes/differences from this explanation as I update. See more info below…
An important part of the #kindermusikprocess is using Kindermusik materials and techniques outside of class- AtHome. In class we practice doing activities that you can do at home. KI & my studio also have tools to help inspire and facilitate you at home.
Below are the different tools and how to access them...
1: first- creating an account & password
2: accessing account info, and what’s in your account
3: AtHome digital (Computer, tablet, phone) library & tools (Kindermusik’s library of music & books, & more ).
5: Kindermusik App- it’s functions and how to link it to your account. Also the added app tools of video library, age specific activities, and digital instruments
6: AtHome info through handouts OR emails AND Physical books, instruments from KI
7. Other physical materials: studio provided arts&crafts AND a library with CDs, activity sets, books, more- (donations needed/accepted).
8: download card (good until Dec31 2022)
Scroll to what you need info on....
#1: Create an account to access digital materials & registration info. This can be done from any electronic device with internet access. **2022 Update** If you set up before Aug1st your login should stay the same. (Contact me if you have any concerns/questions)

* “My Account“ which includes your basic registration info. This is also where you can change that information if needed.
More on “my account” button (the last pic in the above gallery)… it has a pull down menu that takes you to several pages including “payments” which allows you to see payments, edit credit card info, and manage credit card payments; “Account Info” which allows you to edit all your & your child’s personal info, ALSO toggles for opting in or out for texts, non account related emails from Kindermusik international (emails about your account are mandatory), photo policy; “kindermusik.com” the basic Kindermusik website; “Logout” allowing you to log out of a particular account

Each level has a large variety of albums/themes & books.

You will have access to the library for the class/Level you are registered/enrolled (it will be in color/highlighted). Also any best of albums for the general public or for pervious enrollment/registration.
