SEG Measurement conducted a national study of nearly 300 preschool children, aged three years through five years, to test the ability of Kindermusik International’s curriculum ABC Music & Me to affect students’ literacy development.  

During the study, students in both the treatment and control groups were tested with the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening (PALS) Pre-K Assessment at both the beginning and end of the school year.  Results indicated that students in the treatment group showed a 32% higher gain in PALS scores over the control group.  

ABC Music & Me is an early childhood literacy and language curriculum from Kindermusik International that uses music and movement to engage young children, while teaching a variety of skills. Activities are designed to develop and strengthen each student’s early literacy skills, fine/gross motor skills, and social-emotional skills through theme-related songs, poems, stories, dancing, and instrument play.
