CMF has done an impressive job making music lessons accessible to teachers and parents. With this curriculum I see no reason our elementary children should lack the basic music and developmental skills any longer. An amazing staff with such passion for education and music dedicated extensive time and research to develop this amazing curriculum, made readily accessible to classrooms and homes. The CMF has created a wonderful opportunity for teachers; I would love to see it spread to schools nationwide.

Children's Music Foundation's program is professionally developed and serves young children and classroom teachers where extra funding is not available to hire music teachers. It gives them the opportunity to enjoy music and learn much more than music itself, e.g., history, geography, math, etc. They just don't realize how much learning is taking place because they are having fun in this music class. No one denies the importance of music, yet it is almost the first subject to be eliminated when schools face with financial difficulties. It makes me think what we are doing to these kids who go through school without music education. Children's Music Foundation is helping enrich children's life!

This Foundation has been a real blessing to my daughter, Erica. Since starting choir last year, she has blossomed in to wanting to be a part of music and acting. Last semester she auditioned and obtained part in helping with the production of CMF's music education materials. Erica was thrilled. CMF worked with her to teach her the music she needed to learn and how the entire production is put together, from learning notes to being on a sound stage. This experience was and is extremely valuable and helped to further her love of music.
I attribute much her wanting to be a part of music based upon all the time CMF provided her. She is constantly improvising on the piano and/or singing into her “karaoke” (all the while using the broom stick as her microphone).

I have witnessed first hand how dedicated this Foundation to teaching children and taking the time to teach them at their level.

Thanks again,

Anita Rae Manns

CMF's First Note program immediately engages kindergarten and first grade kids in a fun learning experience in their classrooms that not only establishes music as a universal form of lanuage and expression for them, but also creates community and helps build a foundation for learning in all academic pursuits. CMF's leadership and evidence-based program form a solid platform accomplishing for their mission. I'm proud and honored to serve on this board.

With more and more research showing that music education for youth is pivotal to their long-term development socially and academically, it is painful to watch as our educational system continues to eliminate such foundational curriculum due to a lack of resources. Children's Music Foundation has a model that works to assure our country's youth have exposure to quality music education. In addition, they have designed a model that is sustainable to assure its long-term success is not dependent on donation support. Way to go CMF!

My daughter recently had the opportunity to participate in some Children’s Music Foundation classes. The program was phenomenal! Children’s Music Foundation has developed a multi-sensory approach to teaching children music. The program is FUN, the children LOVED it plus it was educational!
Our school district doesn’t provide a music program for K-2. I wish our district had the benefit of CMF’s program. It is truly amazing and something I wish every child could experience. I highly recommend this program to both schools and parents.

I would increase public awareness of this organization with the intent of attracting more donors therefore increasing funding which would allow them to reach more children with their phenomenal music program.

After 23 yrs of teaching young children, I have had the opportunity to work as Program Director for CMF from the beginning. I strongly believe in providing young children with an educational experience that integrates the "Arts" and builds on their natural creativity. I have had the privilege of seeing children participate in the "First Note" curriculum and it's a joy to see their faces light up with the excitement they feel playing an instrument and moving to the music.
First Note is a standardized curriculum that will have young musicians, ages 5-7 singing, moving and playing percussion instruments from lesson 1 through lesson 30. At the end of the school year they will have mastered over 48 songs, several percussion instruments and an understanding of beat and rhythm that will create a foundation for the rest of their lives.

Seeing the joy on the children's faces as they sing, move and play percussion instruments. I've received positive feedback about our "First Note", beta program from teachers across the country. Emphasizing the need for music programs that are easy to implement and fun for the kids just like FIrst Note.
