Ten months ago, I got the opportunity to start up a Kindermusik kids music & movement program at a local music store right by my house. It was (and still is) a total dream job. Not only did I get to continue to be a stay at home mom, but I got to combine three of my loves: the early childhood years, teaching, and music. It has been such a fun experience.
I love watching children fall in love with music with their parents right by their side. I love watching the toddlers who’ve been around for a while “teach” the newer children. I love watching them explore and find new ways to make music or move their bodies. I love the stories I hear from parents when their kids sing their favorite songs or do their favorite dance movements at home. I just LOVE it all.
Music is a wonderful gift for any young child. Psychologists, neuroscientists, and experts in early childhood development have demonstrated that music does more for children than bring them joy; it helps their brain cells make the connections needed for virtually every kind of intelligence. Kindermusik classes are based on this research.
I believe everyone should be able to experience music. Today we’re giving away a FREE month of Kindermusik classes to one lucky family so they can have this experience with their children.
