Thanks for stopping by A Family Place. I enjoy working with families, and sharing the power of music with them. Kindermusik provides this outlet for me. This blog will allow me to share thoughts and ideas that can help families in their journey.

Fun Times in Kindermusik

Kindermusik families have been marching, playing, singing, and having fun in Kindermusik classes this fall.  Steady beat is foundation of music, and that is always a focus of any class. We march to the beat, tap to the beat, sway to the beat, and any other ways we can think to keep a beat! 

The older children have been learning about percussion instruments, and have listened to a variety of instruments.  This culminated with making their own!  Here are some pictures from the past several weeks. Fall classes continue through the week of December 5th.
