Testimonials for Kelly Judge

Kelly’s songs not only have a powerful message but they are highly engaging to the students.  I watched kids sing with such passion, and the most passionate ones were often the ones I least expected! These songs have inspired our students to write their own character education songs. What a gift! The students made connections from what they learned in the songs to real life situations… which of course would be our ultimate goal!  Wow!

Kelly!  You are amazing!  Both of my boys came home today telling me all about the songs you did with them and Will told me all about the lesson on the importance of being yourself!  Thank you so much for the time you are investing in our kids and the ways you are teaching them!

Hi Kelly!  I just wanted to say thank you for today! The kids LOVED your song and lesson! I think music is such an important part of a classroom, and the message you bring through your music is truly impactful. I can’t wait for more 🙂  Thanks again!

Thank you again!  I know Sienna would love to keep writing and singing songs with you.  I won’t mention it to her, though, until we know what is possible.  I’m in awe of your talent, Kelly…and your energy!  Thanks again so much and if there is ever anything we can do on our end to help keep the music magic going please let us know.  I shared with the principal this morning as I dropped Sienna off, how much we all have loved you working with our children and the great KECC event.  She agreed.  Of course we completely understand that you are also a mom, have a family, have friends, have other things you are doing and are involved with, so if time doesn’t allow for it we will understand.  We will always treasure this year!

I have enjoyed having Kelly Judge in my class once weekly all year.  She has taught the kids all sorts of fun, educational songs and has tied them in to lessons which help with behaviors and attitudes towards learning and friendships.  The kids love having her come!  They have embraced the lessons and Kelly.  Some of their favorite songs are:  Scram, Mindset, Kind, Stay True, and Busy Hands!

Hi Kelly!  You did an amazing job with the performance last week at KECC. I believe that the students that I was working with thoroughly enjoyed the music as they sang, danced, and laughed to the lyrics. I especially appreciated that you used the students to help write the song lyrics and perform with you.  I thought that it would be fun if you and the students made a video and the kids at KECC could watch and sing to the songs again. Thanks for sharing your gifts and talents with us at KECC!

In my role as Assistant Principal, I have observed Kelly teaching character education with kids.  I always see the kids engaged and singing.  They love the songs and benefit from the continued emphasis on good character.  The songs are creative and use the language kids need to internalize the ideas.

I think it is wonderful that Kelly speaks/sings the kid’s language. They understand the valuable messages. My kids love getting up to dance and use all the fun props she brings. They get to participate in the whole experience – it’s awesome!

My kids always talk about the days Mrs. Judge comes to sing! They love to sing the songs and have been asking when they could have a cd. I have loved hearing the messages in the songs and prefer to hear those from my kids than most of what is available out there.

She’s the most creative song writer ever and she encouraged me to write my words into songs.

Kelly helped the kiddos at Kirkwood United Methodist Church write an original Christmas song for their Christmas program.  Kelly helped the kids brainstorm their favorite things about Christmas, then find a common theme for each class, then rhyme the words, then they sang the song!! It was incredibly successful! The kids felt so special and proud and talented as they sang their very own original song for their parents at the Christmas program! It truly helped the little kiddos see themselves as song writers who were able and creative! Kelly helped them think, work together and produce something they were proud of! As their Music Teacher, it was truly special for me too.  Kelly helped me develop my idea into a plan and then implement it.  She helped me see myself as a song-writer too.  Thank you Kelly!
