Testimonials from Parents and Fans (Thank you!)
"When my daughter was a baby a friend in Canada suggested
that we try out Kindermusik, as she felt it was helping her two children to
learn to love music. We were very lucky to live here in Santa Barbara
where Kathy Hayden's Kindermusik program is one of the best in the world.
Kathy has built her program using her unique background in education and
musical talents so that it includes singing, dancing, and the playing of
instruments, so even the youngest children can become fully immersed in the
musical experience. Maria Montessori said, "A child learns best
through multi-sensory experiences. If a child can participate in a
concept with his touch, smell, hearing and sight, the concept will be much more
impacting and memorable." This proved to be the case! My daughter
completed the entire series of Kindermusik classes, and participated in the
additional Music Majors program with Emily that SB Kindermusik has developed
for older children. Every week for 8 years she looked forward to her classes
and they were the foundation for her continued interest in musical
exploration. Her current piano teacher says that her memory for music is
excellent, and I know that her previous experience with Kindermusik is the
reason! My daughter loves music, when she hears a song she has to sing
and dance along! Thank you Kindermusik,Kathy and Teachers, you have
helped make love of music something special that our whole family can
-Paige Miller, Santa Barbara
daughter Lily started Kindermusik with Kathy when she was an infant. She
loved going to class. That has translated into an enduring love for music
and movement. Now she is nine years old and is taking Ukulele with Emily
through Kindermusik. Ukulele has been an engaging first instrument.
Unlike some instruments it sounds good even when a novice is practicing. Lily
was able to play a simple song after her very first lesson. Her teacher
Emily is fantastic. She is warm, patient, engaging, and has a way with
kids. Lily learned to write her own songs and has performed in front of
an audience. Taking Ukulele has been good for her confidence and has
helped her find her voice. She is shy so it is wonderful to see her have
the confidence to perform. Kathy has always said that music helps academics
and so far this has proven true for Lily. Kindermusik is a wonderful way
to introduce your child to the joy of music"
