"Come Children Sing Online music classes have been great!"
Come Children Sing Online music classes have been great! My daughters, 7 months old and almost 4 years old, really enjoy the class. We sing the songs on a daily basis many times throughout the day. They have fun. I must say that these songs have helped me tremendously because they keep the girls busy. And, you probably won't believe it, but when we are in the car we all sing your songs, including my husband! =) We have fun with CCS and make the most of it. Thank you! Lydia H.
"It was surprising to see my infant actually become aware, learn, and get excited about these music lessons"
Finding things to do with an infant is difficult and finding productive things to do is even more challenging. I have enjoyed the Come Children, Sing! music lessons because they're fun and beneficial. It was surprising to see my infant actually become aware, learn, and get excited about these music lessons. I've seen the Come Children, Sing! lessons help stimulate and focus my infant child. Come Children, Sing! music lessons are easy and fun to listen and sing along with, and are actually beneficial to my child's development. Cass B.
"I love the convenience of Come Children, Sing!"
I love the convenience of Come Children, Sing! We can do the activities whenever we want, with or without the teacher. We didn't have to miss classes when my son was sick or when we were out of town. My 16 month old loves CCS as much as he did when he was 6 months old. Katie K.
"I delighted in the magic and beauty of the songs of Come Children, Sing!"
I delighted in the magic and beauty of the songs of Come Children, Sing! with my own children. I am now experiencing all the joy and wonder of Come Children, Sing! through my first grandchild. Bernadette K.
"The most amazing thing about CCS was seeing how entirely the music could absorb my son."
The most amazing thing about CCS was seeing how entirely the music could absorb my son. When he was a tiny infant who could barely attend to anything, a musical segment could capture his attention for twenty minutes at a time. Now he is a budding toddler who wants to take in everything all at once, but the music still has the power to mesmerize him and focus his attention. When he listens so raptly, it's like his eyes are a window to his developing brain--it's as if you can just see those synapses forming! Jennie C.
"It's a big part of his life everyday."
I raised three daughters with the Come Children, Sing! program. Music has always been an important part of their lives. Now my 10-month old grandson is enchanted with the online version. It's a big part of his life everyday. Barb D.
"I find my own voice and ear are becoming more skilled."
The online Come Children, Sing! musical instruction has given me a true sense for how to best prepare young children for a lifetime of musical learning. I deeply respect Mary Ellen's knowledge in this area. My esteem for this program stems from having seen my child focus and react to the music files and musical play. As I guide my child through the weekly music activities, I find my own voice and ear are becoming more skilled. This is doubly exciting to me, since music classes when I was a child were arduous and wholly unsuccessful experiences. Sonia K.
"She has a lot of fun with the activities"
At first, I wasn't sure that the lessons were making much difference, even though my daughter was entertained by them. As she got a little older and we progressed in the program, I started to notice that she would respond with happy and enthusiastic bouncing to everything with rhythm. She has a lot of fun with the activities at the computer, and loves hearing the CD in her bedroom, too. Christy H.
"I drove 160 miles round trip 2 times a week to the Come Children Institute so my children could have the opportunity"
As a young mother without a tuneful singing voice I wanted desperately for my own children to have the gift of song. After discovering the talents of Mary Ellen Pinzino, I drove 160 miles round trip 2 times a week to the Come Children Institute so my children could have the opportunity not only to become tuneful but to attain the ultimate in musical expression -improvisation. I spent many years observing Mary Ellen Pinzino's classes at her Come Children Sing Institute. I always marveled at her ability to elevate the "non musical" child to a high level of tunefulness and rhythmic understanding. Furthermore, at performances it was clear that Mary Ellen Pinzino's music curriculum developed to their fullest range, the sweet young voices of children. Bonnie L.
"...they learn to become musicians without realizing it."
I first learned of Come, Children Sing! when our oldest daughter was about 10 months old. The activity class I thought I was enrolling in turned out to be so much more! Mary Ellen's depth of musical understanding is amazing, and her beautiful songs and chants entrance children so that they learn to become musicians without realizing it. As our second and third daughters came along, we all continued our association with Come, Children Sing! It has been helpful to the girls as they took dance lessons (they were always the dance students who could follow the music's rhythm.) Come, Children Sing! was a wonderful musical introduction for our daughters. I am so happy that we discovered it and that our girls were able to become such fine musicians under Mary Ellen?s excellent musical program. Jean F.
