Musik im Leben des Kindes

Ich bin Gotthard Killian, Musiker, Cellist, Flötist, Leierspieler. Tätig in Musikerziehung, Komposition, Musiktheorie. 

I am Gotthard Killian, and I am a musician on cello and flute and lyre. I am a researcher in the field of music education,  composition, and music theory.
I research about the therapeutic effect of rhythm, intervals, chords, and scales. Then I also specialise in parents workshops encouraging musical activities to be an important motive in life. 

More and more in the current dramatic developments of our civilisation we are missing the traditional creative and imaginative powerful ways of old to protect the talents of the children in education.

To balance this it seems we need to bring more effort to the attention of this task. We need to find the time to sit down, all parents and all teachers, who show real interest to the questions surrounding this task, and to teach ourselves again, so that we can be good role models for our children.

The teacher must be an artist first and then more and more a scientist too. If we already start too dry, it must be a strange expeience for the children, and they would loose their creative forces too early, before they can find ways and methods to hold them dear forever and to save their talent into their adulthood. This is the wish of this music teacher who has worked with all ages and is keen to more and more specialise in the early years of childhood, and the relevant teacher training.


From birth to adulthood the developing soul of the children needs music. Parents and teachers need to find support in supporting the child's journey.


Children need to sing and to dream in their own space.  Early education and school need to provide a reasonable proportion of time and curriculum for the inner soul life and development through the creativity and imagination through music. In our time where media are pushed and senses foundations are not reasonably built, we have to come with research to enhance the literacy and numeracy through sensible approach, listening, singing and learning an instrument.


Music gives the child the feeling to be human and it can learn to feel self-confident through its own doing. This is a study for rebalancing the soul life of the children, finding harmony and inner strength through active musical life. 

*The Project: Curriculum for a musical curriculum from birth to high-school including a parents manual and a teachers training book. During and after the publishing of the result I would also engage with the public in workshops. 

*When should it be available: The funds should be ready by end 2017. Thank you very much.

*The money will be used by providing the print and the research funds for me. 

*This means so much for me because I see that a deficit of inner life will often result in crisis of the young biographies of youth and with music life probems will hardly occur, because the young person has a clear goal in front of itself. Education becomes so much easier and the interest to learn is higher and more focussed. 

*My gratitude would be expressed in introducing this new method to the world and a free print copy would be made available for every donor over $30 as soon as it is printed, by the end of the year 2017.  I would further give time for a consultation and can offer tickets for workshops which will be given in Northern Europe and the USA.

To the friends and supporters of my campaign of the Musical Child. Dear friends:
My new years aims:

My working and researching results are showing promising goals, publications and I can be hoping for a position in tertiary education.

A video class of eight lessons about Waldorf curriculum was presented, a lyre course in three parts of 8 classes is in process, and a recorder class with 8 classes too. Studies for the nature of the musical scale in the spheres of the earthly organisation of time have been finalised on the number of the platonic year 25920 and wait for publication now.

Your help is essential and absolutely appreciated. Thank you to all donors in the year 2017!

Die Aufarbeitung der Frage nach der Zwölfheit in der Musik ist nach den Veröffentlichungen von Beckh, Pfrogner und Ruland von Interesse. Michael Kurtz hat berichtet in seiner umfassenden Monographie über Rudolf Steiner und die Musik dass Steiner zeitlebens sich wohl nicht zu Beckhs Buch Die Sprache der Tonart geäussert hat. 100 Jahre nach dem Ende der Tonalität im Musikschaffen Mitteleuropas und nach dem die Vorschläge die Tonart entweder mit Softpop oder mit Lautstärke zu ersetzen gescheitert sind ist es wieder einmal dran die Erweiterung der Tonart im Erlebnis anzusetzen. Die Tonart ist tot. Es lebe die Tonart. Hier wird es versucht. Die Tonwelt im Gehör wird sich intensivieren sobald wir die Musik spielen die dies moeglich macht. Wer macht mit?
Die Melodie lebt intensiv im Einzelton.
