As a music educator myself, I know how important it is to expose young children to a variety of music. Both of my children have taken music class with Karen since they were under a year. Once my older son aged out of the Munchkin’s Music classes he transitioned very smoothly into piano lessons with Karen. I believe that attending Munchkin’s Music and listening to the cds at home greatly prepared my son’s ear to be aware of duple and triple time, the basics of solfege and the ability to repeat rhythms and match pitches with his voice. He is now enthusiastic about playing the piano and enjoys his weekly lessons with Karen. She is very structured and positive and is fantastic with kids. I look forward to my younger son following suit, music class has always been one of our favorite bonding times of the week. Karen has a passion for children and music education and shares the belief that playing/singing music is an essential skill for all children to gain.
