Welcome to Kids Music Company
Welcome to a world of interactive, purpose- built music, created to help children learn more than just music.
Movement is essential for child development. When you add music to the movement the benefits multiply.
Benefits of movement
Benefits of music
Children are naturally drawn to music, and the years from 0-9 are the most powerful for establishing musical foundations. We can also use the power of music to help children learn other essential skills. Remember how you learned the alphabet? You probably sung it, even before you understood what all those letters meant. Wendy and Janet are trained teachers with significant primary and early childhood experience, so using music as a vehicle for learning has always made so much sense.
Vehicle for learning
Wendy and Janet began Kids Music Company in 1989, and since then have been creating music, and running classes and teacher workshops to help make learning fun for kids.
Welcome to Kids Music Company.
"I have taught music in the Nelson region for 12+ years. Kids Music Company resources are the best I have used. Kids love the songs and the instrumental ideas are excellent. I thoroughly recommend them."
Early Childhood Music Teacher
Lessons based on Kids Music Company material are always successful. The songs and activities are user friendly and the children easily relate to the subject matter. The lessons reflect the Orff philosophy covering speech, rhyme, movement, body percussion, playing untuned and tuned percussion instruments. The original material is fresh, exciting and the children enjoy the humor. On A High Note I and II have given my choirs hours of fun and singing which was also enjoyed by audiences of staff and parents. The Kids Music Company series provides a solid base for several years of music teaching.

"I have seen Wendy and Janet develop as teachers over the past 30 plus years since their student days. In their specialist field of early childhood music education, they have established a well-deserved reputation equaled by few. Auckland parents are most fortunate in having these classes available for their children."

"Our son has been attending musical lessons with KMC for over two years now. He has gained a practical grounding in music and looks forward to his weekly classes with Janet, his favourite teacher. We have been impressed with how interesting and enjoyable the music is for children, as it is targeted to Kiwi kids. We were also Impressed with the numerous international awards KMC has won. Furthermore, the classes are full of fun – the children also learn singing, dancing and having their first interaction with instruments. Xavier will definitely be carrying on his musical training with KMC."

"I just wanted you to know that your music is alive and well in Noah's Ark Children's Ministry in Uganda. When we left NZ to come and work here as missionaries, I made sure I had all your CDs that I owned on my ipod. The nursery children have just loved the songs I have taught them especially from Wriggle and Jiggle. I have found the positional language ones very useful in teaching the chn from the nearby villages the English language. They also have loved Marching on a Monday, In Between and Bunny Jumps Off. Well done you two. Thank you both for the inspiration that you are to so many all over the world.
May God bless you both"
