A few months ago a client and friend of mine, Kelly Alligood came to me with a great idea. Kelly is a super talented Kindermusik teacher and she wanted to show the parents what she sees every day in her classes. Kelly gets to see so many moms and children LOVING each other and having FUN all while learning music and skills that will last a lifetime. I was so excited to be a part of this great idea but I didn’t know what to expect. I have heard of Kindermusik before but I really had no idea what it is exactly. Over two days, I was able to observe six classes and I am just amazed at how awesome the class is for both the child and the parent. The kids were singing, laughing, playing, LEARNING, and moms were enjoying a little down time with thier babies AND spending time with other moms in the same place in life. Perfect! It is so perfect that I will be taking my Sarah to a class this semester. Kelly is so great with the kids and you can tell she is gifted in teaching music.
Still not sure what Kindermusik is all about?? Check out this link: All about Kindermusik
or check this out: More about Kindermusik
And look what else I found about the benefits of teaching music to young children:
Research shows that kids who are actively involved in music (who play it or sing it regularly):
- do better in reading and math when they start school
- are better able to focus and control their bodies
- play better with others and have higher self-esteem
