Over the years we have had our boys in the Interactive Metronome program and various Music classes at A Child's Song in Westminster,CO. The growth we have witnessed in the boys is a true testament to the great teachers and their commitment to not only our boys but to all of the children who get to experience the great programs offered at A Child's Song.To see what we mean plan to go to a recital and see the work that is ongoing in the children's program of Dance,Music and whatever they have taken on as an endeavor there at A Child's Song. We are grateful for the ongoing dedication to our students.Tracy O'Brien Broomfield,CO.

After searching the Boulder Denver area for a teacher certified to do Interactive Metronome with our boy we found the only person qualified in the area was Sandy Taylor at A Childs Song at that time located in Westminster. After 2 years of intensive work with Casey and the Interactive Metronome Class we have seen increased focus in Math and all of his Motor functions.We would reccommend A Childs Song for all of their highly qualified teachers and programs.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The highest quality programs for all students can be found at A Childs Song.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make more class times available.

My little girl has attended Kindermusik and AussieRoo classes at A Child's Song since she was about ten months old. She is now two and a half and we can see the amazing impact these educational classes has had on her physical, emotional and behavioral growth. She is a very strong willed child who was often very resistant to directions and structure, but each teacher in her class remained patient and consistent and willing to help her in any way they could. My daughter is already reading small books and I know that a large reason she is able to do that is because of the work that her educators have done to stimulate her brain all while having so much fun! I am always impressed with how much I learn about my child's growth and development both mentally and physically from her teachers, they are so well-trained it's impressive. I know that I can trust any person at A Child's Song to reach my daughter's fullest potential while loving her exactly as she is. I would recommend any of the classes there to anyone with a child. I am so grateful for them and their service to our family.

My children have both been enrolled with A Child's Song since they were about 18 months old. First we enjoyed the KinderMusic curriculum that was taught by their very nurturing educators. Since my younger child was very active and seemed to struggle with fine motor development, they were always gracious about suggesting at home activities to stimulate brain development to help with her issues. At the age of 7 she was diagnosed with Dyslexia and ADD.



Currently my daughters are 10 & 8 years old and are enrolled in The Studio's piano lessons. This last year I have enjoy watching my 8 year old overcome symptoms of dyslexia through learning to read music and "work her brain" with the cross-lateral hand movements of playing the piano. We also experienced The IM (Interactive Metronome) program last summer and are pleased with how it helped my daughter to improve her focus and attention.



I would highly recommend A Child's Song to any new parent. Music and movement used together at an early age are a wonderful enhancement to any child's development. The KinderMusic classes are also an amazing bonding experience for both parent and child. Both my children currently love to play and practice piano. Thanks to Sandy and all the staff for their wonderful contribution to the lives and for cultivating a love a music that will last their whole lives. You are amazing!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching my child overcome learning challenges.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to expose more children to the benefits of music education by providing more scholarships.

As parents of adopted children we were keenly aware of the high likelihood of fetal alcohol and drug exposure. We knew that proper musical and physical activity could help stimulate brain development during those early years. 2 of our 7 adopted kids have been students at A Child's Song since birth. We feel that it was a significant contributor to their happy and healthy childhood. As the kids grew we moved them into piano and then into other activities like voice and drama... oh well, no guitar players... I am also on the board and an officer, so I have seen similar results for many kids over the years. There is also a significant impact to the entire family as moms and dads take part in the activities with the kids! It is a great experience and truly beneficial!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

2 of our 7 adopted kids have been in the programs at A Child's Song since birth. 2 other older kids have been involved but were already school age when we started KinderMusik with the little guys. They participated in piano, instrumental, and voice educ

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Seeing families brighten as the parents participate with the children in various classes.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

knowledgeable, loving, caring, and skilled at working with children ad parents.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide more scholarships and more special programs like the successful senior center and Summer Kinder Culture programs. They could take some of their special learning models nation and world wide.

My shy 11 year old daughter came to A Child's Song, Inc. with a simple desire to learn to play the guitar. She has learned more than guitar notes and chords. With the guidance from A Child's Song she has started to write and play her own songs and perform confindentially in front of others.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing my daughter grow as a student.

I've devoted a huge part of my life helping to further the cause of A Child's Song because I so believe in the power of music in developing the brain at all ages.
