If you have been seeking a complete Waldorf music program for the early elementary years then you have come to the right place! Waldorf Essentials has partnered with Kimberly Parsons, a master in the field of music to bring you a product like no other. She gives songs to learn in kindergarten and full lessons for grades 1 to 3. The lessons are amazing! Don’t read music? ME EITHER!
In this program, Kimberly takes you through the process of learning how to bring music to your child. I love her approach because it takes someone like me through all the steps! Years ago, I played the recorder with my older children. In 2014, I had a stroke and lost all of my playing skills, I was left with only my voice to use in lessons with my children. I have been determined to regain this skill before my youngest child is ready for the flute and recorder. But Melisa, you might say…. didn’t you write a music book? YES! I did. I co-authored a music book with a dear friend and former assistant of mine, Amber Hellewell. Her artwork was so beautiful and I know it has been loved by many families. This new book is much different than that previous work and while I am very proud of that first music program, this one is much MUCH different.
This is a digital course that includes audio as well as the main PDF document. This will be released in FOUR segments. One purchase covers the entire year, K-3 grades. You will have access to each segment as it releases.
