A New Reason to Celebrate

You may remember that last year around this time, Joy received notification that her Kindermusik program had been awarded Maestro status, putting them in the top 5% of Kindermusik programs worldwide. Well, Tuesday, Joy got confirmation that she's moved up a level to not just be a Maestro educator, but a member of the Maestro Conductor's Circle. What does that mean? It means that in less than three years, Joy has built her program to be in the top 1% of all Kindermusik programs worldwide.

Isn't that amazing?

If I may brag, my wife is terribly good at what she does. She's certainly found her calling.

WOW!

Can I ask you, Joy, when will I know if my child can sing? He is 2 1/2 and doesn't really match pitch very well (like his father). Is it too early to know who he takes after?

Joy, congratulations! You've worked so hard in your program, and we're very proud of you. And Maria adds that she was blown away by seeing you in action at Will's birthday party. She says, "Joy looks so alive when she's leading kids in music!"

Congrats, Joy! That's an amazing honor, and well-deserved!

Liz, Joy wanted me to tell you that you shouldn't worry about matching pitch until they can't do it in fifth grade. Just keep singing to and with him and don't worry.

YAY! Thanks Andrew! I didn't have any idea how early it was supposed to start. I teach the older kiddos...
