Kindermusik With Friends is holding a grand opening event for its new studio location at 1351 Park Road in Chanhassen from 4-6 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 26.
The event includes tours of the new studio spaces, meet and greet with teachers, short demo classes every 20 minutes, giveaways, an opportunity to try several instruments, and an outdoor live performance by The Teddy Bear Band at 5 p.m.
Kim Shiely, owner and educator at Kindermusik With Friends for the past 10 years, has recently relocated her business. “The space that has held classes for so many years on Market Street is being redeveloped for condos. We were so fortunate to build out a great new location while staying in Chanhassen,” she stated, in a press release.
Kindermusik With Friends holds music and movement classes for children, ages newborn to 7.
Shiely has been awarded Conductor’s Circle Top Program status from Kindermusik International since 2011. Out of over 5,000 educators around the world, this local music studio is ranked 7th in the United States and 13th in the world, the press release stated.
Shiely began providing Kindermusik in 2009 with just 50 families in her program. Today Kindermusik With Friends reaches over 350 families and has expanded its teaching staff with the addition of Tirisha Dirks, Charity Harvala and Jessica Brandt.
