"There are so many wonderful things I could say about not only the concept and fundamentals behind Kindermusik, but also the special teacher that Ms. Christa is! My now 8 month old son and I have been going to classes since he was 5 months old and it has been amazing to see him develop over this short time. Children at all ages, but particularly young pups, learn by example, play, song, and repetition. The course material is set up to facilitate this and Christa is phenomenal at giving parents ideas for how to incorporate these lessons at home!
Lastly, Kindermusik with Christa values getting your money’s worth. At Henry’s age, he has had his fair share of illnesses and Christa has encouraged make up classes so we don’t miss out. If you are even considering Kindermusik, do it! You won’t be disappointed!" - mom Courtney
