Our final year students are adding string instrument playing to their lessons, and the first day back they made their instrument- the two string mountain dulcimer! Using musical reasoning, within minutes of finishing their instruments they were playing portions of a song that they learned on glockenspiel last year… What a great example of the ‘of course I can!’ that we instill over the course of our whole program!

We have been having a wonderful time this summer with our zoo theme! As we bounce like kangaroos, flutter like birds, sing like parrots, chug like the zoo train, and so much more, we build music and life skills! Visit us on facebook- ‘like’ Kindermusik with Sound Foundations and see all of our Adventures! Don’t forget, as we move into August we have musical, single-class Playdates available throughout the month… the perfect way to get a taste of Kindermusik, or to round out your summer fun! Come join us!
We Love Kindermusik! It was a simple concept, really, this idea for a WE LOVE KINDERMUSIK Week. It was born out of an increasing recognition of just how many of us – educators, children, and families – have been touched by being a part of something that’s more than just a curriculum or a weekly activity. The idea came to life as we reflected on just how much love there is for Kindermusik and how meaningful it would be to set aside a week to come together and purposefully delight in all that Kindermusik is and means to all of us.
With this one annual specially designated week, we will be able to publicly and corporately give voice to that light in a child’s eye, that song in her heart, that little person just waiting to blossom – to acknowledge all those precious, miraculous moments we as Kindermusik educators are privileged to nurture and celebrate with our Kindermusik families each and every week. Simply put, WE LOVE KINDERMUSIK WEEK is a small way we can raise up together to celebrate the wonder and magic that is uniquely Kindermusik.
And so, with much joyful delight and anticipation, Kindermusik International and the Partnership for Kindermusik Educators invite you to join us in celebrating WE LOVE We Love KindermusikKINDERMUSIK Week during Valentine’s week, the week of February 13 – 18, when Kindermusik educators and families around the world will join together to show – and tell! – how much we all love Kindermusik and what Kindermusik means to each of us.
As a little background, you might find it interesting to know that WE LOVE KINDERMUSIK Week, to be held annually in February of each year, was designed to:
* raise awareness and generate good will for the Kindermusik brand
* unite families and educators around a common cause
* give educators a way to show families how much we love Kindermusik and how much we love them!
* encourage families to share why they love Kindermusik
* highlight ways we can all do some good and spread the joy of Kindermusik
* remind all of us of the magic that is uniquely Kindermusik.
Keep an eye on KI’s blog, Minds on Music, and KI’s Facebook page between now and the middle of February for ways that you can celebrate and share what Kindermusik means to you. Kindermusik International is getting the love started by giving away a free download of “Love Somebody” from the Peekaboo, I Love You! album at play.Kindermusik.com. To download, go to http://play.kindermusik.com/en/tracks/3139-love-somebody/and then select the orange download button. If you’re new to the site, you may need to register to receive the free song, as all our song downloads do require a login. (Don’t worry, we don’t use your information on anything. This login feature is designed for those enrolled in Kindermusik classes to access their digital materials). Upon login, you should be able to quickly download the song to your computer.
WE LOVE KINDERMUSIK week is truly intended to be a week of happy reminders of why we all love Kindermusik and most importantly, of all the special people – educators, families, and children – who come together every week to change the world through music…. one child and one song at a time.
