Why you should play the Timpani (or any instrument)

Do you know what these drums are called?  If you have a 2-4 year old in Sound Beginnings class this semester, they could tell you, "A Timpani!"  We learn the names and sounds of 5 or more instruments each semester of Sound Beginnings.  I was so excited to see 2 Timpani at an event I attended last Friday evening.
There are so many benefits to exposure to instruments at any age.  I thought this video was simply fascinating!

Fun with Music and Literature

What an exciting fall! Classes have begun and the studio is full of fun and songs each Tuesday and Wednesday.  I love seeing all my Let's Play Music and Sound Beginnings families and getting to know the new students each year.  
We are off to a great start with most classes full or almost full, there are just a few spots left for Red Balloons (4-6 years) and a new Sound Beginnings class began this month in Loveland meeting Friday mornings at 10am!  If you or anyone you know would like more information about these openings, contact me asap!
I have loved singing with our friends at the Loveland Public Library again this fall and did 2 free classes in September for the playgroup.  
If you have had fun with the color song in Sound Beginnings, or just want to read some great books while you sing about your favorite colors, check out these suggestions!

Piano and Music Classes OPEN For business!

A year of adventures in the SingPlayMusic studio!  Hope you have had a wonderful few weeks since the recital. I am excited to announce the final public hearing was last night and the conditional use grant was passed unanimously!  I am so thankful to be able to continue to teach your kids music out of my home. It will be fun to celebrate with all of you, I will e mail a date for a park playdate/party in June!  We have  much to celebrate and I think I have a lot of chocolate chip cookies to bake for all of the awesome Let's Play Music and Sound Beginnings 
families and your support, thank you so much!  
There are many exciting things on the horizon including a possible Sound Beginnings class in Loveland, a Master Musicians Bridge course for Let's Play Music grads and a beginning piano class for kiddos who have missed the Let's Play Music cut off age, but are still interested in trying some piano.  I can not wait to share the joy of music with your kiddos

Let's Play Music Symposium 2015

Last month was an exciting one as Let's Play Music and Sound Beginnings teachers from all over the United States arrived in San Diego, CA to share ideas, laughs, and of course some songs!
I was thankful to be able to share some recruiting ideas and get to teach a little about using social media in our studios.
It was a delight to present to this group of educators that I respect and admire, and I was honored to share the stage with Shelle Soelberg, the creator of Let's Play Music!

Symposium 2015  Can you find Ms. Robin?

I am so refreshed and excited for the upcoming year!  I was able to complete my Sound Beginnings training while in CA and am super pumped to bring back another year of awesome curriculum for 0-4 year olds.  There is math, science, reading, sign language, dancing, singing, instruments, and much, much more!  What an exciting class, still a few spots open, e mail me for details.  
Enjoy the rest of your summer and see you at KIDS DAYS at Centerra on July 21 from 11a-2p and Let's Play Music parent orientation on August 3rd, 5pm-1st year, 6pm, 2nd year and 7pm 3rd years!
