Sharing the Love with Heart & Soul

We all know first-hand the joy and inspiration that comes from sharing musical experiences with others. It’s why you choose to be part of our Kindermusik family. It’s why we buy tickets to live concerts. It’s why the biggest touring Broadway shows always make a stop in our fine city.

That energy, the wordless power of music to bind us together and to fill our hearts, is what keeps us coming back to it again and again. We choose to invest our time and our resources into musical experiences for ourselves and our families because those experiences feed our souls.

Earlier this month your Song of the Heart Kindermusik team had the joyful opportunity to participate in the Heart & Soul Music Stroll for the fourth year in a row. Heart & Soul brings joy and healing through live music to people who live among us and yet are often isolated from our community, including those in convalescent homes, senior centers, psychiatric facilities, domestic abuse shelters, centers for children with disabilities, and prisons.

Heart & Soul’s mission perfectly aligns with our studio values of Joy, Connection, Family, Growth, and Heart, as they work to use music as a tool to connect generations and help heal the human spirit. That is why we have chosen to joyfully give back to our studio’s neighborhood by getting involved with their organization, sharing their mission, and being a part of this incredible annual event.

Our own Ms Katie said of the event, “It was my third year attending the Heart & Soul music stroll and I enjoyed all of it! Great music, great food trucks, and great company! I loved seeing the joy in all the kids’ and grown-ups’ faces as they sang and danced with Kindermusik! Such a blast!”

Our experience at the Heart & Soul Music Stroll echoes our own efforts at community outreach as we share music with our grand-friends at BeeHive Homes assisted living center each month. Many of you volunteer your time and join us in sharing the joy of music with residents and to make beautiful connections across the generations. 

Haven’t heard of our Kindermusik Playdates at BeeHive Homes? More to come. 

PlayDates With a Purpose

Oh, how we LOVE our PlayDates with a Purpose. We are finding that children and Grand-Friends are the perfect combination for joy. We partner with Beehive Homes to bring this multi-generational class together to sing and laugh and share.

Today, after our Halloween PlayDate at Beehive Homes, one of the dear ladies stayed to talk. She shared that some of the residents don’t attend activities but when the Kindermusik kids come they make their way to the beautiful living room and sing, sway, laugh and play with us. She pointed out a particular Grand-friend who rarely interacts with others but who, today, laughed and shook her shakers and tossed a ball back and forth with a new friend. She was thrilled to see this woman come out of her shell and said she couldn’t wait to have us back again next month.

We adore the Kindermusik families who want to not only share their hugs and smiles but introduce their kids to the joy of friends of every age. We feel so lucky to be a part of this gift. You can join us here  and you can learn more about what we do in the video below. Get out your tissues!
