What Others Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our past program participants do the talking!
“Music with Miss Nina has been a wonderful experience for the children in our integrated preschool. Her music and upbeat, cheerful disposition easily engages all of our youngsters, invites smiles and active participation. Miss Nina’s songs address the preschool common core standards, and reinforce essential concepts that we are learning in a truly age appropriate and meaningful manner. It’s a novel, enriching program in which the children can generalize critical skills and concepts, as they engage in a lively, musical experience. Five stars Miss Nina!!”
“Miss Nina is beyond unique and different from any music program I have experienced as a teacher, and I believe my students have experienced. Every concert is memorable and extremely educational. I’ve never seen my students react so positively to a guest than they do with Miss Nina. They interact, regard their peers, and remember a lot of the favorite songs. You bring life to stories, events, holidays, and more! Even the teachers are always excited about the songs and are dancing. We love your excitement and enthusiasm, how you dress (love the dresses with the chucks!), and the different genres of music, it’s a nice change up! I believe that Miss Nina’s ability to bring life, music, fun, and movement to every single activity is something teachers can benefit to learn from, and also students can benefit from.”
“When Miss Nina visited our library, we had a small, but rocking group. Not only were the youngest children clapping and dancing to the music, but we also had a couple of older elementary aged boys who were clapping with delight. Even the parents were engaged and moving to the music. Two weeks after the show, I’m still singing the refrain from Llama, Llama red pajama. Miss Nina is a professional musician with lots of experience with dealing with crowds of children; she knows how to control a group of kids while keeping them engaged. I can’t wait to have her back again!”
