heart of the child music education – teaching the heart with music

Since its beginning in the year 2000, Heart of the Child Music Education has been offering joyful, interactive group musical experiences to children and their caregivers in its hometown of Floyd. The FUN and developmentally appropriate classes foster a love of music at the same time that they build foundational musical skills, safe connection, secure attachment, and healthy community.

Kari’s welcoming attitude helps adults and children build a sense of community while they gather on the rug for fingerplays and lap bouncing games, play with rhythm instruments, jump, crawl, and swing, wave scarves to choreographed dances, and freeform jam with a menagerie of instruments. It feels so good to be in class, children don’t even notice that they are building the foundational skills for making music together the rest of their lives.

HCME has been literally raising Floyd County children with its Social and Emotional Learning based music program since it began. It still serves Floyd’s youngest members (birth to 5 years old) while watching its first students graduate from high school. One high school senior recently told Kari, “I don’t remember much about preschool, but I remember your music!”

Heart of the Child Music students consistently pursue music creation as they get older, fed by the love of music that HCME nurtures in them in their early years. They go on to participate in programs such as the Floyd JAMs Program and Music Lab Floyd; they pursue private lessons, and they form their own bands, such as The Wildmans, Attak, and Subject to Demolition.

Review on Kari’s new Album ‘It’s You I Like’ Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for this awesome CD!!!!! I’ve been listening to it ever since I got it and it so warms my heart and brings tears and smiles! My inner small ones will need to listen to this many times in the course of our healing journey. So much gratitude to you and everyone who helped to bring this baby out into the world! The world surely needs it!!!! -Rainbow Lonestar
