Music Box Monthly

December 2016

Thank YOU for a Wonderful 2016!!

Our students and their families, teachers & staff are what makes us great! 
Dear Music Box Students, Friends & Families,

We’re drawing to the end of another AWESOME year at Music Box New Westminster’s Music Academy! The holidays are always a time to reflect on our blessings and to appreciate our family and friends.

We want to thank YOU for being a part of our musical family, and we count every one of you as a blessing. This year you have helped us grow to new heights and you have helped us win The Record’s Readers Choice Best Place for Music Lessons for the 2nd year in a row!

Thank you again for being a part of our musical family! We’re excited for another year of making music with you!

Have a great weekend,

Vashti Fairbairn

Music Kids is well organized, offers the lowest ratios, easy booking, highly qualified teachers, amazing curriculum of Reggio Emilia and Music Education to activate all sides of children’s brains, a home away from home

Check out this great Facebook REVIEW!:
“My 2 year old son has spent two days at the daycare now and absolutely loves it! The staff are amazing and so good with the children. There is a lot of new activities for him to try and musical focus to see and hear new instruments and find his own voice, it is so neat to talk with him after and find out about his day. Also I love the updates and pictures they provide for me through their app.
As a stay at home Mom this place is a blessing, to have somewhere to bring my son to play and interact with other children while I run errands or work is just amazing, and not having to pay for more time than I need is priceless.”
