What’s best for our little ones – Our Downtown digs are changing!

Hi Everyone,

Finding the right space for my Kindermusik families has been an ongoing quest for me as we settle into Downtown Orlando. We found a nice home for a while over at First Unitarian Church of Orlando, and I thank them! This Summer was superb! However, due to some changes over there, and room availabilty, I’m not happy with what we have been offered for Fall. The room offerd to us just wouldn’t work with our VERY curious and exploring babies and toddlers.

So.. today I had the pleasure of meeting Katerina over at the Russian Academy of Ballet on Bumby! They are welcoming us in with open arms starting in August and I’m REALLY excited! I hope you all are as well. This room is BIG, BRIGHT and SAFE!

The address is:

Russian Academy of Ballet
421 N. Bumby Ave.
Orlando, FL 32803
(2 blocks south of Colonial Drive, connected to the Plaza Theatre)

It’s right next to Babies R Us, and all the shopping in Colonial Plaza (Too Jays, Barnes and Noble, Starbucks, etc.)

So.. if you are one of our downtown families, considering our downtown location, or just curious to see where we are going, here are some pictures!

It’s attached to the Plaza Theatre (you may recognize this)

We are excited to begin on August 28th!

All the very best,

Downtown Summer Classroom Details!

Hi everyone,

As we move into the HOTS months of Summer, we had to evaluate what would be best for our summer classes. The FUCO location classroom that we had been using is in an older portion of the campus, and the air just doesn’t work very well when it gets hot outside. It’s perfectly fine when its cool outside, but hot temps = hot classroom which isn’t good for dancing and moving about! :)

So.. we are taking a little move over to their main hall for summer and they are graciously letting us use their library! This is still on the same campus as before, just in a different building. It’s a WONDERFUL space, and we are really really grateful and excited for the permission to rent and use it!

It’s a VERY cool room, and we can adjust the air levels ourselves, so there is NO concern about it being too hot! Everyone will be quite comfortable. It’s a fully carpeted room as you can see below, and bigger than the other classroom.

I wanted to be sure to share this info with those who took classes downtown in the Spring session, as this could most definitely influence your decision to join us for Summer since it was starting to get hot in the other classroom towards the end of the session. :) Also, wanted to be sure those who are currently registered for summer know where you will be going!

We are VERY excited about this move for summer and we think you will be quite pleased! Because this classroom is bigger, we have decided to change the schedule a bit by removing the 1:30pm music class. The schedule can be viewed by clicking here. Downtown classes are listed as FUCO (First Unitarian Church of Orlando).

Now Hiring!

Grow and Sing Studios is seeking new teachers and birthday party staff to teach Kindermusik for their Maestro Awarded top program in the Orlando area!
If music and children make your life richer, now you can enjoy them to the fullest. Join the Kindermusik community of teachers and families, who all share a passion for transforming the lives of children through music. You can be part of the world’s most carefully researched, developmentally based musical learning program – and still balance the other priorities in your life. In short, it’s the easiest and most rewarding way to put your own gifts to work.
All Grow and Sing Studios teachers must have a degree in Music. Strong vocal skills and ability to play guitar or keyboard is important and a plus. In order to teach Kindermusik for Grow and Sing Studios, new hires must enroll in Kindermusik International’s 8 – 10 week licensing program, as well as participate in Grow and Sing Studios mentoring and training alongside that. Our teachers need to have lots of wonderful energy and enthusiasm, and be GREAT communicators! This is a part time contract position, and is a perfect supplement to teaching private lessons or another part time job, as well as perfect for a stay at home parent (who wants to do some music on the side!). A background check is required as part of licensing. For more information, please contact Owner/Director Holly Lesnick at or 407-970-2774. Learn more about Grow and Sing Studios at https://www.growandsing.com.

THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!!!!

Holly

Maestro again!!!!!!!!!!!

Maestro Award

We proudly received the following letter yesterday:

 

April 1, 2009

Dear Maestro,

 

Congratulations on earning Maestro status for the 2009-2010 license year, which begins today, April 1, 2009!  This recognition is for the educators who serve the most children, are the most masterful teachers, or distinguish themselves through outreach.  This is an “august” group – the best of the best.

This mission, that we collectively call Kindermusik, couldn’t possibly have the breadth of benefit for children without you.  I know you have made great sacrifices and applied liberal amounts of elbow grease to get to this level.  I appreciate you and your efforts and will do everything I can to help Kindermusik serve your continued success.

Thank you for all you do on behalf of music and children.

 

Most sincerely,

 

Michael G. Dougherty

Chairman & CEO
