Kindermusik Educator Statement
Belief and Commitment
As a licensed Kindermusik educator, I believe that music has the power to illuminate and enhance lives, to
foster a sense of community and to tap the unique gifts that each child offers to the world.
And I believe that every child deserves the opportunity to know, and enjoy and grow with music.
I am proud of my capability to make the world around me a richer place by sharing my love and understanding
of music, and I dedicate my abilities as an educator to bringing music into the lives of children in a positive, supportive
and encouraging way. I recognize that music for children is not about perfection
but about possibilities.
In my work as a Kindermusik educator, I am committed to supporting all of my Kindermusik colleagues, those in
my local community and around the world. I understand that today only one child
in 400 enjoys the benefits of Kindermusik, and I recognize and support the fight of every licensed educator to reach as many
children with music as possible. I will foster a spirit of mutual encouragement and boundless opportunity among my colleagues
and will always let the best interests of the child guide my actions and decisions.
I will uphold the values and purpose of the Kindermusik curricula in my teaching. I will honor and abide by the policies that predicate my privileges as a Kindermusik educator, and I announce
my intolerance of those who abuse this trust and dishonor the integrity of the Kindermusik mission.
I understand that Kindermusik curricula provide the structure necessary to shape a rich pedagogical and musical
experience but also empower me to respond with flexibility and sensitivity in my classroom to honor the unique needs and individuality
of every child.
I believe in the quality of Kindermusik music education materials and share the belief that these materials
are necessary for the child’s optimal learning. Every child who experiences
Kindermusik through my program will enjoy the benefits of his her own home materials.
And finally, at the heart of my work as a Kindermusik educator, I will demonstrate the Kindermusik conviction
that the parent is a child’s most important teacher, and the home is the most important place for a child’s learning
to take root and grow. I will guide families in bringing music to their children’s
lives believing that every child is gifted and every child is musical.
