If you get to spend any time at all with Dee, you are immediately touched by her joyful energy and beautiful spirit, something which completely infuses her studio, Music with Ms. Dee, as well. A licensed Kindermusik educator and business owner since 2006, Dee’s Kindermusik program is flourishing, attracting south Florida families to multiple class options at her two studio locations in the Boca Raton, Florida area. Described by her families with words like “engaging,” “energetic,” “loving,” and “fun,” we are delighted to feature this dynamic educator known as Ms. Dee to all of her Kindermusik families and to highlight what it is that makes Music with Ms. Dee so special!
TC: What do you feel has made your studio business a success?
DP: I’ve been blessed with AMAZING families who have been so loyal and supportive throughout the years. I am TRULY grateful!
TC: What’s your favorite part of teaching Kindermusik?
DP: I hear parents tell me repeatedly how their child’s love for music is because of their coming to my Kindermusik class. This could not make me happier!
TC: This is always a fun question to ask a Kindermusik educator who’s been teaching as long as you have, but what’s your favorite Kindermusik song to sing?
DP: There are too many to count! At the moment, I’m loving “Walk Along Rover” but I also love “Butterfly Wings” which is one of my all-time Kindermusik favorites!
TC: And how about your favorite Kindermusik dance to lead?
DP: Today? “Kerry’s Ten Penny Wash.” But I will probably have a different answer tomorrow!
TC: If you had to name just one secret to success in the Kindermusik classroom, what would it be?
DP: Connection. Connecting with the children while teaching is a must.
TC: Connection – love that! Is that part of what makes your studio such a special place?
DP: Yes! I really feel that our studio is a special place because it’s where families come to intentionally connect with their children. Learning is an added bonus.
TC: What are some of the goals you have for your business?
DP: I look forward to growing with more teachers and families, and adding seasonal playdates with Grandfriends at either an assisted living facility or convalescent home.
TC: Outside of the studio, what are some of your hobbies?
DP: I love the beach and anything music related. Singing, dancing, going to see live shows, concerts, musicals… I love it all!
TC: What is your favorite inspirational quote?
DP: I have several on rotation. Here is one very special one to me: “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
