Disclosure: This post is sponsored by WestMusic and their Kids of Summer Video Contest.
My kids love music and dancing. From bitty babies they loved playing, singing and dancing to their their bongo drums, shakers and other little instruments. Ellie had so much fun in her music class as a baby and to this day she says she wants to be a singer. Ronin just loved his Kindergarten music class this year. He came home singing and dancing all of the time.
Music gives the kids (and me!) so much joy and I think its important to encourage the creativity in our kids. Music is also a great stress relief and anxiety reducer. So when WestMusic contacted me about sharing their Kids of Summer Video Contest, I was totally on board. By submitting a video (by August 1st) of your child showcasing their talent and creativity with music, whether singing, composing, musical instruments or dance, you could win $300 to WestMusic.
Winning that money would be awesome. So far my kids haven’t tried playing real instruments but I would love to see if that interests them. We have several musicians in the family, including their Daddy, so I know its in the blood.
Up to this point, we’ve taken their musical enjoyment and rhythm and have put it into dance. Ellie took ballet last year for the first time and is in a summer ballet class right now. It is so stinkin’ adorable seeing those sweet little girls in their outfits working so hard. I’m mean seriously, isn’t she ridiculously cute?!
Ronin had never taken dance, but with his love of music we encouraged him to try out a hip hop dance class this summer and he is just having a blast. He wants to keep going into the fall and be a part of the big recital they do at the holidays.
I absolutely love how much they love it. Its great to have passions, eh? Do your kids love music to0? Are they singers, dancers or musicians? If so, you should have fun creating a video together to enter the WestMusic Kids of Summer contest.
From WestMusic – How to Enter:
Film your little one rocking the world (or the living room) for 30 seconds to 2 minutes. Though it’s probably beautiful, we don’t need an epic sonata or the entire first act of his/her latest prog-rock guitar fugue. Keep it short and sweet – simply show us your little one feeling the music, having a blast. After all, that’s what music is truly about.
Follow these two steps to ensure proper submission by August 1st:
- All contestants must first upload his/her video to YouTube.
- Then to officially enter with West Music you must:
