New Kindermusik Location in Clifton, NJ



Microtone Music is proud to announce a new addition to our Kindermusik family -- we will shortly be starting class on Mondays at St. George Greek Orthodox Church in Clifton, NJ.

We are offering nearly our full menu -- everything except Young Child and Sign & Sing, which we will launch in the Spring semester.

How it came to happen is an interesting story: I (Mr. Michael) was called by an old organist friend to cover for him at a wedding in Clifton. The Pastor at this church is also an old friend, who we hadn't seen in quite awhile. This would be Greek Wedding (yes, indeed, Big and Fat), which would mean some music at the beginning, some more at the end, and no music to play during the ceremony itself.

So, during the wedding, with no cues to wait for, my wife and I were able to just sit back and enjoy the ceremony. We were in the choir loft, literally among the beautiful icons of the Greek Faith. STUNNING works of art, and we could see them up close. It was a gentle, spiritual time and we held hands and just experienced it. We were at that point putting in 7 day weeks and very long days setting up our CT program from scratch. So it was quite a relief to just have some quiet time together.

Afterward, we stayed on to chat with our friend Fr. Peter. In passing we mentioned our new educational venture, and his eyes lit up. He told us he had been looking for some kind of music program for the very littlest members of the congregation. Might we consider doing something for them on Sunday mornings? We said of course! And our program grew by one more location then and there.

So on Sunday mornings we are doing a very short program we are calling "Little Lambs," a Kindermusik-inspired, Faith-oriented program for the youngest children in the church.

And on Mondays, we are offering our full Kindermusik program to the wider community of Clifton: Village (newborn to 17 mos), Our Time (18 mos to 3 years), Imagine That! (3 to 5 years), and Family Time (all ages together). You can see the schedule here; just click the name of each class to be taken to the page for that curriculum.

Welcome aboard, St. George GOC and all of Clifton!
