Yamaha Music Canada Brand Ambassador!


I am super excited to announce that OneSmileyMonkey.com has been selected as part of the new Yamaha Music Canada Brand Ambassador program!

Over the next 10 months of this exciting ambassadorship our preschooler will be attending weekly piano classes at a local Yamaha Music Canada school.  Music is such a fundamental component of human culture and behaviour and I am super thrilled that our son will be experiencing musical education during such an important stage of his childhood.

My husband’s business is music related and both of our little ones have been exposed to musical instruments and music since they were in the womb. Our preschooler loves music and keyboards and he is super excited to start taking the lessons in September. On the other hand we can’t wait to watch him grow, learn and flourish through his music education.

He will also receive a Yamaha keyboard to practice at home and he told me he was very excited to own his own keyboard “just like the ones Daddy works with”.  Both my husband and I can’t wait to experience this with him and we are also excited to share his development, excitement and growth with you all through monthly blog posts. Wether you are looking for music classes for your own child or you just want to learn about their teaching process be sure to stay tuned and check back for our update posts.

Have you thought about signing your little one up for music classes?

    What an amazing opportunity for you and your little guy! I wish I had been able to enroll my kids in some kind of music classes when they were little, but I just couldn’t afford to and I’m not musical at all, but I love music, though!

      Thanks Nena!

    Looking forward to reading about how the music classes go!
    Music is so important for kids! I grew up playing a few instruments, and although music wasn’t an interest for my boy, I’m hoping my girl might have a little more enthusiasm/interest for it.

      Yes, be sure to check back for the photos/videos and updates

    Wow! Congratulations!! How exciting it’s going to be for you and your little ones! I did music classes with my little guy since was 9 months old…but it was more to introduce him to music and small instruments like guitar, tambourine etc. He loved it and still does.

    • Angela V — August 26, 2014 @ 9:08 am (#)

      Good for him! Great that he loved it!

    How very exciting for you all. My children also learned to play music instruments –
    but I did strike when one of them wanted a set of drums 🙂

    • Angela V — August 26, 2014 @ 9:09 am (#)

      His drum set is in the basement and he is only allowed to play at certain times. It was a xmas present from my parents 😉

    Looks like lots of fun, hope he keeps up with the lessons. My dad was a musician who could play 7 different instruments just like his father before him. I tried several times to learn but to no avail

      7 different instruments, wow that’s impressive Darlene!

  8. Melinda L. — August 28, 2014 @ 8:25 am (#)

    Congratulations!! I loved playing the keyboard and piano when I was a child, later it was the flute and clarinet. Music is definitely something everyone should get into at least once in their life.

    what fun! there is nothing like being able to play a musical instrument, Bravo
