ABC Music & Me!

For a Child’s Brain, Body, Heart & Soul.

There are many things to do with kids – why not make it fun & educational?!

ABC Music & Me is an award-winning enrichment program for 2 to 6 year olds. It helps develop pre-literacy and language skills through a child’s most-loved rituals: music and storytime! ABC Music & Me supports the early childhood standards and requirements for “high quality programs” as defined by the National Institute for Early Education.

Kindermusik with Karen Valasek and Friends currently offers ABC Music & Me! classes for students at KCAA Mother Rice Preschool and KCAA Wai Kahala Preschool. If your child is a student at one of these schools and you would like to sign up for a class, ask your child’s teacher for a registration form, or you can download the registration form for your school from the Registration page. Miss Karen also teaches classes at her home studio in Aiea. You can find the registration form for these classes at the Registration page, or enroll online via Kindermusik's EZ Enroll.
