  3. Hi Kindermusik,

    I love what you guys do with music and I saw a while ago you posted the Mom Song and Dadsense videos by Anita Renfroe to William Tell’s Overture (I know hilarious!) anyway, I run a parenting blog written by teen’s for the kid’s perspective on parenting called OnTeensToday.com. We made a kid’s version of the song. I was wondering if you would check it out?


    We are all about getting kid’s voices heard and think this is a funny way to do it, we would be so appreciative of any posts of it you would be willing to do. We would also love to maybe have you guest post on our blog or do some link love sharing…we are all about spreading positive family values. Please let us know!

  4. What a wonderful blog!

  5. From the experience I have had, this program is awesome. I would like for you or someone to come to our place to have a music session with my little ones. I would like a session on this Friday, June 10th, before noon, if possible.

    • Shaquana, I am out of town this week. Allison Antkowiak may be available, She is in Clayton. Call Neighborhood Academy of Music in Clayton 112 Butternut Lane and ask them to put you in touch with her. If you are able to wait I will be back next week. Julie Stewart
