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 share"

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"-Leise Thomason, SB
