Testimonials from our 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 has been
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 Kathy, Teachers and Kindermusik- you have helped
make love of music something special that our whole family can share"
-Paige Miller, Santa Barbara
have been attending SBC Kindermusik with Kathy and Teachers for several years and it has
been an amazing program to be involved with. It has been a class that we
have consistently attended over the years as my children love the
classes. Kathy and teachers are so incredibly energetic and engaging with young
children that they always have a fun time and learn something from each
class. Kathy also offers fabulous birthday parties that are great value.
My daughter loved her 5th birthday party at Kindermusik. I would
recommend Kindermusik, Kathy and Teachers without hesitation to any parent of
