Every year, parents have an opportunity to tell their thoughts about Kindermusik. These reviews focus on the Our Time program for children from 18 months to 3 1/2 years old.
“While the class itself can seem silly, it’s “just” singing and dancing which most people say they can just do at home without having to pay the cost of Kindermusik. But the amount of research that goes into every silly song we song is incredible. I think what I’ve learned through ‘just singing and dancing’ definitely helped my children’s development. (and they are insanely intelligent!)”
“I think the Kindermusik program, our teacher Ms. Debbie Mondale, the interactions that take place along with the introduction to new music and sounds helped expand my sons language skills. The experience is beneficial on many levels, music, language and social skills have all grown in my opinion during our two semesters.”
“The learning that happens is way beyond just music. I love that the overall concepts taught help with their social skills, emotional well being and behavior. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve used the songs and activities while out and about to help pass the time and avoid meltdowns. And the cleanup song-brilliant 🙂 I think it’s such a great foundation for learning and we look forward to coming every week! I’m so grateful for the friend who told me about kindermusik!”
“Debbie Mondale, the instructor, was truly inspiring. The way she responded to the children and the adults. It was amazing to see the way my grandson, Jayden, responded. He loved all the instruments, which we have incorporated into our daily sessions at home. I have always made music a part of his life, but Debbie helped me see how to interact with him through the music. I was told about Kindermusik from a friend and I have told several people about Kindermusik. Thank you for the experience and am looking forward to many more classes.”
“I have recommended Kindermusik to friends and they have come, brought their child(ren) and loved the classes. I will continue to say good things about Kindermusik to new friends. Miss 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. I love the structure and organization of the class without being overly structured or strict. 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.”
“My son and I love Kindermusik. I love watching him interact and learn new things from the kids in his class and from Ms. Debbie. I also liked how other family members were encouraged to visit – Daddy, Grammy, and Pop Pop loved coming to a class!”
“Kindermusik is a wonderful music and movement program. It shows children at a young age the power of music. Debbie is a fantastic teacher. She is extremely passionate in what she does and it shows each and every week in class. My son loves going to Kindermusik each week to see Miss Debbie. Debbie also sends out weekly email communications recapping what was done in class and providing several other examples of things you can do with your children (including local events taking place) This is extremely important to me as I am a working mother that rarely if ever has the ability to take my son to Kindermusik so it is great to hear what he is doing in class. I would highly recommend this program to every parent. It is well worth it.”
“Debbie is so talented and passionate about what she does. Not only does she teach the children songs and activities, but she also teaches the parents about how the activity helps the child’s brain develop. I know of no other music program that incorporates the music with the education of the child’s development. Debbie knows her stuff, and you can tell she loves what she does!”
My favorite quote from a child, when asked why they liked Kindermusik: “Ms. Debbie is Silly!”
As I am putting these Parent Perspective pages together, I am feeling very humbled and honored to have such fabulous families to be a part of this Kindermusik community. I really do love what I do, and I am grateful that others find it worthwhile. I appreciate the kind words… Thank so those who have shared, and to those who will share.
