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"

-Paige Miller, Santa Barbara


"My 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
