Early Childhood Music

I view music as a form of artistic expression and developmental learning. When I teach young children, my goal is to open as many musical doors as I can, with exciting and engaging works that reflect the diversity of our musical heritage and our lives, allowing the students to find the music that speaks to them. Music is important in developing the young mind. The ability to recognize rhythms and beat in music is a building block for the patterns that appear in language and mathematics. The opportunity for self-expression and pattern skills a young child learns in music class will be an important part of their entire lives.
