On March 10th Today show host Ann Curry interviewed a family with a 17 month old who can read. She identifies complicated words and even cursive.

“We tried to do everything we could to try to stimulate her language growth,” Michael Barrett told Curry. “From day one Katy has been using sign language with her. We think anything relating to language is a good thing to nurture.”

She is amazing! See the video here…

Kindermusik is one such activity that helps your child’s interest in reading. Language skills are fostered with singing, sound imitation, and vocal play and Music & Movement Story Time encourages emergent literacy skills within the structure of the classroom experience. Our home materials, if used on a regular basis, give parents the tools to continue this learning at home. Kindermusik also offers Sign & Sing to families with children 6 months through 3 years.

 Check out Kindermusik classes for your child. You may be surprised at what they will learn in addition to music! Remember Kindermusik is a whole brain, whole child, whole body experience!

Our First Festival Experience was great!

I have been teaching voice lessons for 16 years and have always provided opportunities for my students to sing, but due to schedules was not able to participate in our local Clayton Music Club. Membership was required to participate in our local NCFMC Festival and finally in the last year I was able to work it out and join. Thirteen students from Kindermusik of Clayton & Voice of Clayton participated Friday, March 7th at Meredith College in the Raleigh Festival. I was so proud! Five students received Superior ratings and the rest received Excellent ratings. For a first time experience for all of them I was so pleased. They were all excited to hear their scores and I look forward for many more opportunities for them to excel!
