That being said, I read recently that if you want to have your child develop a lifetime love of music, encourage the social aspect of music making with dance, group instrument playing and singing. We've certainly witnessed that in our little studio. For many Kindermusik families, one of the best parts about being involved in a musical endeavour is the opportunity to bond with others. As people come together to learn about music and put those new found skills to use in community jam sessions, we are able to feel the energy in the room and communicate with each other on a new level of connectedness.
I want your children (and you too, parents) to feel at home in the class. I want friendships to be made, conversation shared, and music enjoyed! It's why we have a little bonding/play time at the beginning of class, and dance together and share our own stories of life. In the long run, it's a happy, connected child that wants to keep coming back to learn more another day.
