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.

Together Again!

Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's.....all great to spend with family and friends.  After the shopping, traveling, and eating it's time to resume routine.  Children love the holidays, but they crave the familiar.  Another thing children need is time with the adults in their life. Time that is free from errands, laundry, and technology.

There are many wonderful activities to engage your child, but consider Kindermusik in 2013.  Here are a few reasons:

  • Your child will learn listening skills!  This is a great skill to have at home, in the classroom, and in life!  
  • Your child will experience taking turns - another life skill!  
  • Children work on fine motor skills through playing instruments and gross motor skills as they move to music.  These transfer to cutting with scissors, holding a pencil and playing a sport!
  • There is evidence that Kindermusik shows positive effects, particularly around the development of parent-child communication, language and reading skills. 
  • Friendships are formed that continue after Kindermusik is over! I know families with teenagers that have maintained the relationships they began in the Kindermusik classroom.  A good beginning never ends!

Classes resume the week of January 14, and many have space available.  You can get a brochure here.  If you have questions about openings email me at

Despite all the concrete evidence that music increases our capacity to think and perform at higher levels, it is the “soul” of music that, in the end, makes a difference in human behavior.  Linda Swears
