"We have been going to Kindermusik classes with Silvia for almost 2 years, since my little girl, Olivia, was 3 months old. I can honestly say that those classes are one of the highlights of our week. Olivia has always loved music and dancing and has great rhythm, and I think that Kindermusik has a lot to do with that! Silvia has such a lovely manner with the babies and children and they all seem to adore her. It is fantastic to have the take-home materials and be able to listen to the music at home; we still frequently listen to the very first CD we got from Kindermusik. The way the classes are structured really seems to help the children understand music more; it seems very well researched and is not just singing and dancing, but also introduces them to concepts of music such as tempo and different styles of music. Silvia also uses ASL in her classes so the children can learn how to sign lots of different things. We love Kindermusik and intend to keep going to the classes as long as we can!"
Beth, Mom of Olivia
"I started Kindermusik with my son when he was just 8 weeks old! He is now 26 months and it's been a welcome constant in our weekly routine. He has really loved the classes and the teachers. He's developed into such a happy child who loves music and gets so much enjoyment from it. It's given us lots of ideas for activities to do at home. The take home materials have been great resources to use especially in the car and while travelling. It's been an excellent opportunity for the kids to interact and learn new skills. We have been so happy with this program!"
Olivia, Mom of Tommy
"My 18 month old son and I love our Kindermusik class. Kindermusik is a precious time for us where I can give him my undivided attention. Silvia is a wonderful and dedicated teacher who has been an exceptional guide through the world of music, providing helpful information on developmental benefits for children and sharing activities for home. The program is very professionally run. We also love the amazing CDs, which magically stops crying in the car every time!"
Maiko, Mom of Louie
"I love Kindermusik because it allows my daughter to learn through music, dance, and interactive play with other children. It's been a great way for us to have fun together while also making new friends."
Megan, Mom of Devyn, age 2 1/2 years
"I have attended Kindermusik on and off for 4 years now, first with my daughter and now with my son. Not only do they love the classes and the take-home materials, but we've also made some of our best friends through the classes."
Vanessa, Mom of Jonathan and Eva
"Kindermusik is undoubtedly the highlight of my daughter’s week. She asks everyday if we are going to “music class”! We have enjoyed the new songs and percussion instruments that have been part of each week’s lesson, and she loves dancing and experimenting with the different movements we explore as a group. Also, being new to Abu Dhabi, this has been a wonderful way of making friends. We have loved our time with Silvia and the class at Zayed Sports City. Silvia brings a wonderful enthusiasm to her teaching and she clearly loves music and the children that she teaches. Thanks Silvia, we will continue to come along and enjoy your class."
Rebecca, Mom of Isabella
"My children are in their second term of Kindermusik with Silvia and they really enjoy the classes. Silvia is talented, patient and engaging with the students in the class. My kids love learning new songs and exploring their creativity in class and look forward to going each week."
Katie, Mom of Sophia and Adara, age 3
"My son and I love the time we spend at Kindermusik classes and listening to the songs at home is also something we try to do throughout the week. We explore rhythm and movement every week and spend time with new friends and our interactive teachers. We started Kindermusik when my son was 6 months and haven't missed a session since.....he just turned 2 last week!"

"This is to share our experience with the Kindermusik class with Ms. Silvia Sopkova in Abu Dhabi. My 8 month old son Yahia absolutely enjoyed the Kindermusik class and particularly Ms. Silvia's positive energy and calm demeanor. During each class, we sing, dance and get to meet other babies and their moms. Our first couple of classes, Yahia was shy and kept very close to me, now I can see how his confidence has grown, and he is now happy to move around and play with other babies. It's such a great pleasure to see your baby growing and observe the difference from class to class! The CD we took home is absolutely wonderful as it has a great collection of international music! It's great to expose children at such a young age to a variety of music and instruments representing different cultures. We are looking forward to participating in future classes until Yahia is 7!"
P.S. To this day, whenever we sing beat the drum, Yahia smiles and bangs his hands on the table.
Thank you Ms Silvia!
Razan Nabulsi, Mother of Yahia, 8 months old
