“As a trained and licensed local Kindermusik educator, I love bringing the world of Kindermusik to our community. Each week in my Kindermusik studio, I lead music classes for families filled with singing, dancing, laughing, instrument playing, and storytelling—all backed by Kindermusik International’s team of early childhood music experts and the latest research on how children learn best. In addition, I partner with parents to support their role as a child’s first and best teacher by providing tools, tips, and resources to understand how (and why!) to use music and movement throughout the week. From Kindermusik’s early childhood music classes around the world to the loving local community of families at my studio, together we put a song in the hearts of children.”
