National Families Week is all about celebrating and supporting families. Raising kids is a challenging time, exhausting and exhilarating, and so important for creating connected communities with compassionate people at their heart. So come celebrate your family with us, this Saturday, where music and dancing are the aim of the game.
Come to our first ever open day - your only chance to try for free our Kindermusik classes in term 2. If you can't make our open day, you're welcome to book a 4 week trial to see how Kindermusik works for your family.
Some of you might be familiar with the "What's on For" directory of activities for babies, toddlers, preschoolers and kids. You might not know that they also host a National Awards competition for children's activity providers.
This year, the Kindermusik program has been nominated for two awards, which absolutely confirms the high regard in which this program is held all over the country by families working with talented and trusted qualified Kindermusik Licensed Educators.
In addition, I (Robyn Hodge) have been nominated in the
Most Outstanding Activity Leader 0-5 years (activity teachers/coaches etc) section of the awards - wow! So a big thankyou goes out to the thoughtful parents who nominated me and Kindermusik.
The next phase of the awards is where the nominees go out to the popular vote, and voting for this stage of the awards closes TOMORROW March 17th (St. Patrick's Day). If you would like to vote in the awards (and I hope you do!), click the button at the bottom of this post and it will take you to the awards page.
To vote for the Kindermusik program, there are two sections:
And to vote for me there is just the one section:
There are also a whole bunch of other award categories you can vote in or leave blank if you don't know who to vote for. The awards are supported by some very generous and family focused sponsors including Di Bella Coffee and Pure Gold Pineapples and are a great way to acknowledge businesses and service providers who aim to enrich the lives of children and their families.
It only takes 2 minutes so I hope you'll consider me and Kindermusik for your vote!
Best wishes from Robyn xx
The South Barwon Community Centre proudly presents "Newkestra" - a six week course for beginners in ukulele which will provide learners with all the foundations required for playing with a Ukestra around Geelong. Classes are from 2-3pm each Tuesday commencing Tuesday the first of November (we will probably stop to listen to the cup and may even run a sweep!)
Robyn is fresh back from Ukulele teacher training in Newcastle and desperate to try out her new strategies on unsuspecting ukulele players. You can expect to make friends, have fun and improve your ukulele playing no matter what level you're starting from. At the end of the six weeks, you'll hopefully be able to:
Strum a handful of chords
Pick the C major scale and play melodies in 2 keys
Read music notation and chord diagrams
Accompany your own singing and
Play music in a variety of styles.
