New Kindermusik Studio opens in Rockwall

Kindermusik classes provide music and movement activities to foster brain development in babies and young children, while helping them bond with parents

ROCKWALL, TX (July 13, 2014) After completing a comprehensive training program that incorporates education in child development and music concepts from Kindermusik International, Danielle Yonchak received her Kindermusik license and opened a new business, “Kindermusik by Joyful Melodies,” in Rockwall.

As both a licensed elementary teacher and Kindermusik educator, Yonchak is experienced in tapping  into the different developmental stages and learning styles of children. Yonchak teamed up with Russ Porter, owner of the Rockwall School of Music, to bring the joys of music and movement to the children and families of Rockwall, and make available the long-lasting and far-reaching benefits to all areas of development – physical, cognitive, social and emotional.


Since 1978, more than two million families in over 70 countries have enjoyed Kindermusik music and movement classes, beginning as early as their first infant months. Classes involve a mixture of singing, instrument play, dancing and movement, storytime, and other activities that help children and their families discover how music can enrich their lives and lay the foundation for a lifelong love of learning.

Psychologists, neuroscientists, and experts in early childhood development have demonstrated that music does more for children than bring them joy; it helps their brain make the connections needed for virtually every kind of intelligence. Kindermusik’s curriculum is built on this research.

A few key benefits to the classes:

  • Activities are designed to develop and strengthen a child’s physical and neural functions, social-emotional skills, early literacy, early math, and much more.
  • The style of the class allows for parent/child bonding moments. This bonding boosts learning.. Music and movement classes can spark learning in young children, and when done in conjunction with a parent, can help build bonds between parent and child.
  • Parents receive new digital home materials each month, including games, stories, listening activities, and free song downloads.  The home materials, which can be accessed from any computer, smartphone, or tablet, allow parents and children to continue the fun and learning after class and provide valuable resources for great parenting.

“Kindermusik classes give parents the opportunity to engage in safe, fun and developmentally appropriate music-and-movement experiences with children ages newborn to seven,” said Scott Kinsey, President of Kindermusik International. “Our educators are our most vital asset to the success of Kindermusik, and we welcome Danielle Yonchak to our Kindermusik community.”

Parents are encouraged to register for a free demo class that will be offered on August 27th and 28th at 10:00 am at the Rockwall School of Music.  Regular classes begin September 3rd.  Visit for more detailed information about Kindermusik by Joyful Melodies and the various classes that are offered.
