A Beautiful Song from the Heart of Kindermusik Educator Carol Stringham

Not only is Carol Stringer ranked in the top 1% of Kindermusik studios worldwide (Maestro), but she is the true epitome of a dedicated music educator. She has been teaching for over 20 years in pre-schools, elementary schools, and children’s choirs. We welcomed Carol into the Kindermusik teaching family over 10 years ago, and as a Maestro, only 2 years after her program began. Her love for music goes beyond Kindermusik. She also has a degree from the University of Utah in elementary education, with a minor in fine arts, and has been a loyal member of the Utah Symphony Chorus for multiple years. Don’t miss the opportunity to catch a sneak peek into the classroom of Ms. Carol Stringer who’s own motto is, “to bring musical experience to children and their families; helping them to find the joy and power of music and hoping to put a song in their hearts that will last a lifetime!”

One Proud Papa!

On May 27, 2010, I received this letter from a proud father of a potential Kindermusik teacher. It touched my heart, and I hope it will inspire and encourage you to take the leap and join the Kindermusik community of educators that are all passionately committed to changing the lives of children through music.

To Whom It May Concern:

My daughter is a student at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL, and is pursuing a Music/Business degree with an emphasis in management. She is a musician, plays flute and piano, and has taught in the head start program in Tulsa, OK, for several years before entering Full Sail.

I just wanted you to know how much of a positive impression your company has made on her. She first discovered Kindermusik before entering Full Sail and was looking for a pre-school for part-time work possibilities. She read about the Kindermusik school, which happens to be nearby her location, and paid a visit to learn more about it. She was so impressed by how the school uses music so much for instruction that several of her monthly projects have focused on these methods and opportunities. I think you might have a future business owner in the making.

She sent me her latest project for one of her classes. She had to post it on youtube so I could access and view it. I thought it spoke so well of your mission and her feelings about your company that I felt you might want to see it.

Thanks for caring for children in such a wonderful way.
