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.

On The Road –  Music and Art  Adventures Classes for all ages!
Adventures Music & Movement
On The Road
Babies – 7 years old
This Summer’s fun curriculum is On The Road!
Re-live your childhood, with your child. Every song is likely to revive a memory from your summers’ past. Take imaginary trips in a bus named “Van Go” to fun-filled vacation destinations such as the carnival, a summer cottage, and the beach. Each week is a different destination!
 
This class is multi-age. Many folks each summer tend to ask us how this might work with a toddler and 5 year old in the same class for example, and the answer is, it works BEAUTIFULLY. We have been offering this format for almost 11 years now so all children home during summer can participate, and it’s tried and true, and endless amounts of fun!  Home materials included: On the Road book, Home CD, frog guiro instrument, and poster.

 

Our music and art classes (see right) follow the same theme each week. They are scheduled with the option of registering for a single class, or as a 90 minute weekly art and music parent participation camp experience .
Bring one or more children to any combination! 
 

Click here for more information and to enroll!

Adventures Art & Book Time
On The Road
18 months – 7 years old

Each class you and your child will explore our On The Road theme through stories, song and art! During each class your child, along with your gentle guidance, will create TWO unique art projects which are immediately available to bring home. We believe the magic happens during the art process, so we encourage each project to be unique and something your child can be proud to say they created. All projects are age appropriate, and materials are non-toxic.

Also included each week is a snack and story time all based around the theme of the week! Class fees include tuition, all art materials and a weekly snack. This is a parent or caregiver/child interactive class.

Babies who attend On The Road music class (see left) can watch while older siblings create during art class.

Each lesson features new activities and songs that the parent can sing for all the places baby and mom go together-the store, the playground, the doctor, and more.
