In looking at what changes I would make to “the way we have done things for years” in my music studio, and talking with other Kindermusik educators, it occured to me that I could fit ten Kindermusik 4-week themes into September through August. I could also take off most of August and December, which would be a gift to myself and to my families, also. August is almost like the Sunday before a Monday—trying to squeeze as much out the remaining days of summer before school begins and December…well, need I say that it’s a busy enough month in preparation for the holidays?
But…a month without Kindermusik is like a month without musical joy, so I have decided that those months without Kindermusik will be our Kindermusik PlayDate months. Instead of our monhly Musical Meet-ups, we will have at least three opportunities during the non-Kindermusik month to get together for a PlayDate. You could even invite a friend who may not know about Kindermusik to come with you!
Years ago, we did PlayDates and our families enjoyed the surprise of a bag with a new instrument or prop and the Musical Download cards with which they could download all the songs used in the PlayDate. We’re bringing them back and you are invited to join us for the fun this August! Just go to the Schedule tab at the top of our homepage, select PlayDates in the drop-down menu and register for one or all of the PlayDates we are offering.
Looking forward to playing with you and your child!
