Tiny Tinkles Music Studio celebrates anniversary with fundraiser to help moms and babies in need

A local parent-and-child music studio is celebrating its first anniversary at its new location by holding a fundraiser for fellow mothers and babies.

Tiny Tinkles Music Studio opened its ‘Mommy and Me’ studio in Chilliwack Mall last September and has been bringing music into the lives of approximately 100 kids every week, says owner Debra Krol.

“We are doing a fundraiser for Meadow Rose Society for our one-year celebration and instead of [me] being paid for the first week of classes, I’m asking everyone to bring a donation for Meadow Rose,” says Krol. “Their cause is dear to my heart, helping the littlest ones who need it most.”

Meadow Rose Family Help Centre Society offers help to low income families by giving them basic necessities for children aged three and under.

Next week, from Sept. 3 to 6, children aged five and under and their parents or care givers can take in one of Krol’s free music classes all while donating to Meadow Rose. Donations of diapers, formula, clothing, toys and money are suggested.

Classes that week include: Tuesday, Sept. 3: 9:30 a.m. Zumbini, 10:30 a.m. Baby Class, 11:30 a.m. Sing Me a Story (formerly called the Artabet). Wednesday, Sept. 4: 11:30 a.m. Yogi Songs and Stories, 12:30 p.m. Music with Ms. Deb, 1:30 p.m. Zumbini. Thursday, Sept. 5: 9:30 a.m. Yogi Songs and Stories, 10:30 a.m. Baby Class, 11:30 a.m. KiddyKeys, 3:30 p.m. Prodigies Uke and Recorder (meet and greet), 4:30 p.m. Music with Ms. Deb. Friday, Sept. 6: 9:30 a.m. Prodigies Bells, 10:30 a.m. Yogi Songs and Stories, 11:30 a.m. Music with Ms. Deb.

People must register for one of the free classes at eventbrite.ca to secure their spot.

Krol, lovingly known to many as Ms. Deb, has been operating Tiny Tinkles for a decade. After years of renting out rooms in churches and dance studios, she moved to her current location in Chilliwack Mall. It is the only music school in Chilliwack that specializes in music for babies, infants, toddlers and preschoolers.

Krol has 23 years experience teaching music and is a piano teacher registered with the BC Registered Music Teachers Association.
