 The magic of community.

I’m writing this as I sit in a friend’s home, listening to the hum of the dryer as my laundry spins. Typically around this time, I send a “time is ticking” or “enroll now” email to the masses, encouraging new families to preview and previous families to come on back to class. Of course I want those things to happen, but I feel it’s more important to focus on the magic of community, friends, and helping each other.

So, why am I doing laundry at a friend’s house? To make a long story short, a pipe burst in our home which produced flooding and mold. 90% of our downstairs is affected, which left our home office, piano studio, foyer, kitchen, laundry room, and downstairs bathroom uninhabitable. We have at least another 6 weeks before life and Grow and Sing Studios headquarters will be up and running. Uprooted during the holidays with our 2 kids, 2 dogs, and 2 cats in a hotel has been a challenge. Yet it’s also a reminder of the blessing of community and friends. Piano lessons have been in session for a week because a kind customer opened their home and piano to us. Our staff was so flexible and met at our hotel for our spring staff meeting, and even serenaded the hotel staff. Home cooked meals by family and friends have been the most comforting moments as most of our meals have ended with the words “take-out”. How does this tie into classes beginning? Well, I’ve been teaching Kindermusik for over 15 years and have seen so many connections formed. Not just between adult and child, but between adults and adults. Lifetime friendships are made every day when we gather together for Kindermusik. A place where each and every attendee has one focus in mind – connection.

We are starting a week early because of missed time during Hurricane Irma. This was another time when our community came together, helped each other, and connected. If you’ve been considering Kindermusik, we welcome the opportunity to join us this week, free, to experience for yourself what our incredible community is all about. Yes, Kindermusik is about music, but it’s so much more. It’s planting new seeds of connections, watching our beautiful children blossom, and perhaps meeting that lifelong friend.

Why these moments mean everything

I first stepped into a Kindermusik classroom as a brand new mom to our daughter Anna. She was three months old, and I was SO nervous! I had no idea what to expect. I had resigned from my job as a Music Therapist and Activity Director in the geriatric population to stay at home with Anna and there was no doubt in my mind music would be a part of our world. The minute I entered that Kindermusik class, my entire world changed. It felt like home. I adored being a Kindermusik parent in class. I was blown away by the child centered approach to learning, the accepting loving environment and the incredible parent education I received. It was one of the most precious times that I now realize go by far to quickly. Considering my degree in Music Therapy, I was quickly convinced to teach Kindermusik and so I became licensed. I loved teaching it. I loved attending it. Thanks to my daughter Anna, who led me there, I found my true passion.
Aiden and I at Kindermusik
Fast forward a few years. I was extremely pregnant with our son Aiden when the studio I worked for closed up their business and I lost my Kindermusik teaching job. After Aiden was born, I was such a happy mom of two, but there was something missing. My little man needed to have Kindermusik and I SO craved those moments with him. I knew the incredible developmental benefits it had already had on our daughter, not to mention the many milestones I had witnessed of others in classes I taught. I honestly couldn’t imagine not having the opportunity to enjoy the Kindermusik activities with him. So, in 2005, I selfishly created Grow and Sing Studios for Aiden. I even convinced my dear friend, a music educator whom I met in music school to work with me, so I could attend as a mom! And so, the roller coaster of business ownership, mixed with being Kindermusik mom began.
It’s been 15 years since I became licensed and I have loved every moment. My husband Will came on board and Grow and Sing Studios became our family business. Our mission, to connect as many families as we can through the magic of music is our focus. We are blessed with such an incredible team of educators who we consider family. Our children both graduated Kindermusik after attending the entire continuum of classes. Anna is now almost 16 and Aiden is 12! I can’t express how much I cherish the moments I had with them at Kindermusik in their first years. The cuddles, the dances, the precious unplugged, uninterrupted moments. They are what life is about.
That is what we want for you. So that when you are in the hustle and bustle of car lines, band rehearsals, and sports practices in 15 or so years, you can look back and remember that fun dance, silly song, or quiet time rocking song you shared with your baby at Kindermusik and cherish them too.
See you soon.
