Educational Benefits

We've got proof that KiddyKeys preschool music classes are educationally sound.

Beginning with the 2006-2007 school year, Enterprise Academy in Green Bay, WI incorporated five arts domains into their curriculum. The domains included music (KiddyKeys), gymnastics, dance, karate, and art. Utilizing the nationally recognized Woodcock-Munoz Mini Battery Assessment test proctored by Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Licensed Teachers, Enterprise conducted a two year study, measuring students test scores in five critical areas. The scores below reflect two years of Arts Enrichment Programming when compared to national norms:

The KiddyKeys program is 100% a factor in the success of these children. KiddyKeys is a vital piece of the whole academic puzzle. The music curriculum is age appropriate and academically appropriate for our students. The program makes learning enjoyable in a new domain. The familiar is incorporated with the new. KiddyKeys utilized multiple teaching styles that helped lead to the success of the students, and will continue to aid in the success of children for years to come. I urge anyone who is considering adding KiddyKeys to their academic acumen in the future to do so.
