Kindermusik at Dunkley Music


Every day is a new beginning. A chance to help your child develop his or her highest potential and strongest foundation for learning. Your child’s journey to success begins here. You’re here because you instinctively know what science continues to demonstrate: young children thrive on music. Experience a Kindermusik music class with your child and see why we’re the world’s leading music-and-movement program for children in early childhood. And, as we say, a good beginning never ends.

Alison Bear is a licensed Kindermusic educator.  She holds a Bachelor of Music degree and a Master of Arts in Education degree from Boise State University.  Music has been a part of Alison’s entire life.   She began studying piano and violin at the age of six.  She taught general music in the Meridian (West Ada) school district for 5 years before becoming a private piano and violin teacher.  She currently teaches 25 private students and is thrilled to merge her love of teaching children and music with her gifts of encouragement, motivation and creativity.

Married to a band teacher in the Boise school district and staying at home to raise their two sons, Alison found Kindermusik!  Upon enrolling her sons in Kindermusik and experiencing the musical , social, physical and cognitive benefits of the program, a dream was born to bring this opportunity to the children in Treasure Valley.
