This post is sponsored by DC Way, however, I only promote programs, services, and events that I genuinely believe in and think will appeal to KFDC readers.
Is this the year your child learns to play music? Did you or someone you know get a guitar, keyboard, drum set, or another instrument for the holidays?
If so, then it’s time to TAKE MUSIC LESSONS at the International School of Music! With two locations in Bethesda and Potomac, the school is the premier provider of music lessons in all instruments and voice to students of all ages and levels.
With online and in-person lessons, the International School of Music brings together a community of dedicated, experienced, world-class faculty that offers personalized lessons in piano, guitar, voice, violin, viola, cello, flute, drums, saxophone, clarinet, harp, recorder, trumpet, trombone, toddler and preschooler music classes and more!
Their teaching methods are student-centered, focused on individual learning styles and personal goals to help each student reach his or her full musical potential.
The School’s fun and exciting Musical Ladder curriculum that rewards practicing and achievement helps students with motivation as they win certificates, wristbands, and trophies. And students get to explore music they are passionate about, whether they play classical, rock, pop, jazz, folk, or music from another genre.
Even more, the amazing virtual performance opportunities as well as many Ambassador community recitals all lead up to exciting concerts at the Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, Strathmore where students thrive & have fun!
So, for the musician in your family or circle of friends, there is nothing quite like the joy that comes from learning music! They’ll be thanking you every time they learn a new song, or master a new technique.

I think it goes without saying that it’s an exceptionally busy time for most moms right now. The pandemic has added a whole new layer of responsibility, activity, and stress to parenting — and to life, in general — that we often forget to take time for ourselves.
This is just what motivated Tracey Coates, a family lawyer, host of the podcast The Tracey Coates Show, and mom of two children to launch Time 4 Mom. The monthly curated subscription box and online community for busy moms was created to inspire personal growth, self-care, and a little bit of me-time.
“As a busy mom of two very active kids, a wife, a daughter, sister and friend, I’ve constantly got a dozen balls in the air trying to juggle motherhood, my family law practice, my marriage, and my podcast,” says Tracey. “Trying to make time for me often falls miserably by the wayside. I realize that we moms can’t be everything to everyone all of the time, and we’ve got to start prioritizing ourselves and stop landing last on our endless “to-do” lists, which is why I created Time 4 Mom.”
What’s unique about Time 4 Mom is that subscribers get more than the monthly subscription offerings. In addition to receiving a fun box of thoughtfully curated goodies each month, subscribers are invited to join a private Facebook community to connect with other amazing Moms, enjoy periodic book club meetings to spark meaningful conversations, and participate in monthly virtual trainings to inspire personal growth (starting January 2021).
October’s box is focused on the theme of refresh and recharge and includes products related to finding time for yourself and filling a need for self-care during the pandemic. One item inside is a copy of the month’s book club selection, Nicole Lapin’s Becoming Super Woman, a simple 12-step plan to go from burnout to balance.
In upcoming months, Time 4 Mom will focus on stress, health, mindset, relationships, parenting, and more. Download a free Time 4 Mom Self-Care & Time Management Bundle here.
