Graduation and Goodbyes

This week our Level 3, 4, and 5 students have had their final classes. As our Little Learners continue classes throughout the summer, the Little Music Makers’ classes have wrapped up. It’s time to GRADUATE and time to say goodbye.

Every year your Kindermusik educator falls in LOVE with your child. And it’s so hard to say goodbye, even if only moving from one level to the next. Please be sure to say hello to your past educators when you see us around as your child STEPS UP to the next level.

Of course Kindermusik continues on with summer camps and music clubs, but it’s always hard to say goodbye to a class you’ve spent a year with.

We love EACH of our graduates and EVERY SINGLE child that has been with us this year.

And don’t forget that even after Kindermusik graduation your child’s musical journey can continue! We offer Piano Club and Ukulele Club for them to really take their instrument playing abilities to the next level, preparing them even further for private instruction and future ensemble participation.

Have the BEST summer filled with music and joy! We can’t wait to see you at Summermusik camp!

Congrats Grads!

It’s that time of year again! We are SO PROUD of our Kindermusik graduates. They have worked hard this year learning their instruments during a peculiar time. Some students learned online at home, others came to the classroom. It was very challenging learning with the hurdles they faced this year and they did amazing!

Last year we had a virtual graduation. We were so glad to be back in person for our graduation this year. It was distanced and different than in the past, but the one thing we’ve learned from this last year is to be flexible and adaptable.

We kicked things off with a Kindermusik Fiesta, including tacos, a sombrero dance, and a piñata.

Each graduate was able to share with the class and parents what their favorite part of Kindermusik was. It was wonderful to hear them each speak and they all looked so adorable in their purple mortar boards.

It is such an honor to be able to have been a part of your child’s early development. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for allowing us to foster a love and understanding of music in them. Now they are ready to SOAR in their future instrument studies. Come back and visit so we can watch them grow. We will miss you, Music Friends!

Celebration in a Time of Pandemic

We’ve ALL been working hard to maintain routine and normalcy during these decidedly not normal times. Things are uncertain, life has slowed down, but the responsibilities we have to our children remain. And our children’s accomplishments and milestones are still happening and must be celebrated!

Our wonderful Kindermusik graduates had an unconventional graduation ceremony this year! It was challenging to plan an event that could be held virtually but still feel special. To accomplish this we had all our graduates film a short video of themselves playing or singing the song of their choice on the instrument of their choice. What joy to see them all perform! Talk about shining eyes: there’s no way to watch these little musicians’ accomplishments and not feel a shot of joy.

In addition to performances from our graduates, we enjoyed the entertaining talents of Utah Magic as he shared with us the few tricks he had up his sleeve.

Our graduation families celebrated from home through zoom, playing with balloons, and proudly putting announcement signs in their yards.

And let’s not forget our wonderful JOY Team. These dedicated educators have been working tirelessly to adapt their teaching styles to an unconventional format to keep the learning and connecting and growth going in your living rooms, family rooms, and home offices.

Dear Hearty Families: THANK YOU for being part of our studio and sticking with us through these challenging times.
