Kindermusik Founder Dan Pratt: The good beginning

Kindermusik as we know it today - the business and the learning approach - started over 30 years ago with this man, Dan Pratt.

In this video (created for the Kindermusik International convention in South Africa) Dan talks about how the Fulbright scholar "accepted the challenge" and started Music Resources International in Princeton, NJ on his back porch in the late 1980s; moved his family onto a farm in upstate New York; translated the German program into English, and eventually, moved the business to Greensboro, NC.

And the rest, is musical history.

Just wanted to say Hi to Dan. I worked with him in Hamden, NY. Thankful to see all is well with Kindermusik! Emily Osterhout Dutcher
