Consistency is needed in times of change

Is your child starting pre-school or Kindergarten this fall? Are you concerned that keeping Kindermusik in his/her schedule will overload him/her? Actually, the opposite is true. With all the changes in his/her life, keeping him/her in Kindermusik provides the consistency required to make the transition easier. With life getting busier, and your child’s activities more independant in nature, Kindermusik is one place the two of you can spend time focused on each other. Loving your child is what it’s all about!

Two studies of Kindermusik students give you additional food for thought! Thank you Lori Burkhardt for the links to this information.

So with that in mind remember music effects the whole brain and Kindermusik uses it’s process based classes to effect your child in a whole child way!

Music and the Brain by Laurence O’Donnell

This is an interesting article with lots of research into it’s topic Music and the Brain.

“Music’s interconnection with society can be seen throughout history. Every known culture on the earth has music. Music seems to be one of the basic actions of humans. However, early music was not handed down from generation to generation or recorded. Hence, there is no official record of “prehistoric” music. Even so, there is evidence of prehistoric music from the findings of flutes carved from bones.

The influence of music on society can be clearly seen from modern history. Music helped Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence. When he could not figure out the right wording for a certain part, he would play his violin to help him. The music helped him get the words from his brain onto the paper. (read more here)

Greetings! Kindermusik Families and Friends!

It is the beginning of school in our area for traditional schools! Summer is over and soon our Kindermusik semester will begin. I am excited to say we have great things happening in our corner of the world!

Gabriela Mistral, a Chilean poet, educator, and diplomat, was the first Latin American to win a Nobel Prize in Literature. It was awarded to her in 1945. Among the many topics she covered, Gabriela often wrote about children. It was obvious how important they were in her work and life. In fact, she even donated the proceeds from one of her books to children who were orphaned by the Spanish Civil War. (posted on Minds of Music, KI’s blog).

Kindermusik International recently came across one of Gabriela’s passages that sums up our own convictions on children as well. It goes:

“Many things we need can wait. The child cannot. Now is the time his bones are being formed, her blood is being constituted, his brain is being developed. To her we cannot say tomorrow. His name is today.”

As you look at your fall schedule and commitments please remember that the value of a Kindermusik experience is matched by no other offering. I so want to be a valuable asset to you and your child. Message me!
