Each family is an “organization” that runs based on a chosen set of values and beliefs, and strives to help each other thrive.

Music Connections is my heartfelt way of creating an extended “family” for all of us, as we learn, strive, and thrive together.

Through the JOY of CREATIVE PROCESSES, like music… and parenting,

we become ENGAGED active learners,

NURTURING each other along the way,

continually DEVELOPING our best selves,

and making CONNECTIONS that last a lifetime.


Is this the right place for your family?   Take a moment to learn a bit more about us, and visit a class, or two.  Give us a chance to learn more about you, and help us know what your child and your family needs most during these magical younger years of childhood.  Perhaps we can be just what we need for each other.


Music Connections

This business was created in 1998 with the vision of bringing the power of music into the hands of families, to facilitate all the connections that music can bring, from personal to global, for your family.  Click on the title to learn more about the connections that musical pursuits can enhance.

Debbie Mondale

is the owner and primary educator behind Music Connections.  Click on the title for a little story that shares a bit about how she found Kindermusik to be a fabulous process for her own growing family, as well as a perfect channel to share her ever growing knowledge of music education, music therapy and child development with families.

Kindermusik International

is an employee owned company, filled with dedicated people who do the hard work of researching the best methods for music education and child development through music, and using that information to develop and publish the high quality materials and curriculum in the programs that are offered for our families.  Their website and social media platforms are filled with guidance and inspiration, and so many ways to connect with the larger worldwide Kindermusik community, all families just like us, learning, striving and thriving together.   Click on the title to learn more about KI, and to Get Connected !


We have many families enjoying our VIRTUAL programs, allowing them to participate in the comfort of their own home or in their back yard!  These families are excited that they can participate in music activities multiple days a week and have more flexibility for participation, comfortable clothing, snacks, and even potty training (out of sight of the camera).  Actually, we have many families who have moved away from Lakeland, but are now able to enjoy Kindermusik with Ms Debbie again!  

In Lakeland, we enjoy making music together OUTDOORS on the DECK at  2700 South Florida Ave.,  part of the United Methodist Temple complex.  Click on the Heading to see pictures and learn more about our Options !

I love the structure and organization of the class without being overly structured or strict.  Ms Debbie is a wonderful teacher. She knows so much about the ins and outs of Kindermusik. She adapts the classes to your child, gives group and individual attention, allows for “independence” when someone (my child) likes to wander off, brings the class together for activity, knows when to pull out just the right instrument to gain attention, and is just overall amazing.


She’s encouraging and is great with giving ideas for home activities. The music is wonderful and my son and I sing most of the songs either in the car, in the tub, before bed, or while we are just playing. I love that the classes bring us closer and that the classes allow grandma and him to be spend time together the days that I can’t go. I can’t say enough good things about Kindermusik.”
