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.

A Good Beginning Never Ends, but the semester is over

Fall semester comes to a close this week, and it has been a great time of singing, moving and learning.  It's wonderful to watch the children grow in their Kindermusik experience.  When the semester began there were children who stayed by the wall, and wouldn't participate.  Or there were children who would run, and not participate in the way mom thought they should.  With the encouragement of great moms, dads, grandma's, and nannies the children began to join in the activities.

In Kindermusik we get to watch milestones such as: learning to sit up, taking the first step, vocalizing their way to say hello, singing part of a song, learning to gallop, playing a steady beat, making a friend, and the list goes on and on.  Kindermusik isn't just about music, it's about children and families enjoying time together.

One personal story...and there are MANY!
A few weeks ago I was at All-State choral auditions, and a middle school girl came up to me and said, "you were my teacher, I came to Kindermuisk."  Later I saw her mom, who told me that I was the reason she was at the auditions.  I can't take all the credit, but I'm glad to have been a part of her musical journey! As the tag line goes...a good beginning never ends!
