Love, love, love Kindermusik by Musical Pathways! By daughter looks forward to her music and dancing time on a weekly basis, singing sounds at home along to the CD's always. This is a great program and I suggest the program to many friends with children! Keep up the great work Musical Pathways!!!
Kindermusik by Musical Pathways has been an absolutely wonderful blessing to our family. My one daughter has graduated, and my youngest is in her final year. They are such beautiful, outgoing, musical young children and excelling in their academics as well. When I learned of the science behind Kindermusik, and how it helps the brain's neurological pathways connect and develop more successfully, that sealed the deal for this mom. Our home is almost always a musical experience as one or both of them are singing and dancing nearly all of the time, and in the car too! The teachers are incredibly knowledgeable and WONDERFUL with the children, AND the parents! I have learned SO much since starting my girls in Kindermusik and have completely changed my outlook and method of parenting, and it reflects in my girls! Thank you, thank you, Kindermusik by Musical Pathways Foundation!
My girls have been in Kindermusik from Musical Pathways since they were infant & toddler age. My older daughter just graduated last fall, and my younger daughter has 2 years until graduation. Both girls have shown amazing results from their experience. People comment all the time about how happy and well adjusted the girls are. They sing and dance all the time, and get along with everyone. I as a parent have learned so much from the staff at Musical Pathways and the Kindermusik program and am a much better parent because of the teaching I have been offered as a parent.
The staff at Musical Pathways truly believes in their mission to improve the life in families by helping parents AND children. Their dedication and passion shows in every single class, every single interaction and with every single parent and child they encounter. It's truly a gift to be associated with this amazing organization, and I thank my friend Terri for sharing this with me. I in turn have shared with others, and will continue to do so, long after my children have graduated.
My son has high function autism and is an amazing kid, but sometimes struggles in big group settings. This program (Kindermusik) has been such a gift to our family. Our 7 year old has enjoyed years of serious musical education while being encouraged and challenged. It is so positive that our whole family looks forward to these special nights. I can't say enough about the staff and teachers. It is a wonderful program!
I have been a BIG fan of Musical Pathways Foundation for more than 5 years now... I have 2 children that are in their Kindermusik program - My daughter is now 6 yrs old and started classes when she was a little more than 1 year old, and my son has been in the program for the past 3 years, ever since he was just 8 weeks old :) Musical Pathways has made a huge impact in our lives as parents. We have learned so much about child development from all of the helpful information they provide and explain during the Kindermusik classes. We have also been blessed to be able to take part in their Parent Education courses (Conscious Discipline) over the past 4 years. Musical Pathways is truly a wonderful organization with Educators who care deeply about all of the Parents and their Children (the clients they serve.) I also really like that they put the profits right back into the organization in order to help those who are less fortunate to be able to experience their Kindermusik program, (which helps to develop all 6 regions of the child's brain - cognitive, language/speech, social, physical, emotional, and musical development.)
Kindermusik classes at Musical Pathways Foundation (MPF) are the best thing I have ever done for (and with) my children. A friend whose child had been in it for about a year recommended it, so I started my daughter Clare in classes right then, when she was 15 months old. The activities in the weekly Kindermuisk classes at MPF foster nurturing and bonding between me and my daughter, but at the same time she has fun, while the activities & curriculum provide learning opportunities in the areas of cognitive, physical, emotional, language, and musical development. Throughout each year of her classes, Clare easily learned many skills that have proven important for achieving success in school. Clare is now 5 yrs old and received her first report card. She excelled in every aspect of social and emotional development as well as mathematical development. Her teacher told me that Clare listens well, shows empathy, and had good self discipline skills. I know for a fact that she learned all of these valuable skills at Musical Pathways Foundation. My son Jack is also in the Kindermusik program at MPF, we started when he was two months old. I love being able to bond with him in such a warm and caring classroom environment. He enjoys the take-home instruments, books, and cds that give us a chance to play and learn more together at home, in between our weekly classes. I also appreciate the weekly e-newsletter that MPF also sends, which has helpful child development information for all ages and stages. MPF is such an important part of our lives, and brings our family so much joy, that I highly recommend it to anyone who has children! ALSO, because of all of my positive experiences with MPF over the past 5 years, I choose to help out the Foundation by volunteering my time to help coordinate as well as work at their annual Fundraising events.
I started to take my daughter to Kindermusik last winter. She stays home with me, so in other classes we'd been to she took a little longer to warm up to new people and new activities. Betsy was amazing at making my daughter and I feel comfortable. She even gave me ideas as a parent how to tailor what we were learning in class to my daughter's learning style.
Now, when we go to Kindermusik, my daughter gets so excited and starts to dance around the room. She picks up anything I put into a song so quickly. It is so amazing, I feel like Kindermusik is helping me give my daughter what will hopefully be a life long love of learning by making it FUN!
This is an amazing program that I would tell any parent to try. This team really gives you the tools to help your child enjoy music, dancing and reading!
Musical Pathways has been wonderful for me and my family! Just a wonderful and positive program. The teachers are really knowledgeable and always willing to help. I know I can count on their help when I am in need.
Musical Pathways Foundation is an exceptional organization. I have had the opportunity to work with Betsy Flanagan and also experience her dynamic teaching style as well as her expertise in the field of music for young children. As a Director of a large studio program myself, I am impressed with her knowledge, her thorough approach, and the care she takes for not only the students and families in her program but her team of dedicated teachers.
I can't say enough about the staff at Musical Pathways. They are the utmost professionals. They care about the well being of their clients - adults and children. They are exceptionally knowledgeable in their field of early childhood music and can only help those that come through their doors with valuable education and benefits.
Musical Pathways is an exceptional Kindermusik program. We have been attending classes through Musical Pathways since 2005. My oldest child has graduated from Kindermusik and my youngest is now in her final year of Kindermusik. This program has played a key role in my children's development - musically, socially, and academically. Additionally, the child development information I learned from Musical Pathways has made me a better parent.
Thank you Musical Pathways for providing top-notched service and most importantly for truly loving all of your families. This is an outstanding program that I would recommend to all families.
