The Kindermusik class of SIM is a wonderful introduction to the joys of learning through music. The environment and materials have helped Shannon to make great progress in her motor skills, speech and interaction with other children. It’s great fun for the both of us and we truly enjoy all the songs in class, at home and especially while driving along in the car with our favorite Kindermusik CDs. My daughter would love to attend the class everyday if she could!.

Mayumi and I have been enjoying Kindermusik since she was 9 months old. I think it is a great way for us to spend quality time together as well as to interact with other children and parents. I have found it to be an excellent program and it has been good to watch Mayumi’s development. Now at age 4, she loves to sing and dance and is developing a good sense of melody and rhythm. Mrs. Teoh is a wonderfully patient teacher and Mayumi looks forward to going to class. The take-home materials especially the music CD’s are also very good. I believe that Kindermusik is an excellent foundation for instrument lessons for Mayumi when she is ready.
