Introduction
Music provides beauty and a way to express ourselves. I teach music to preschoolers, early elementary students and students with special needs. Music has a powerful impact on children's growth and development. I want to help parents and teachers as they guide their children to express themselves through music. I am also a music parent, helping my own daughters in their musical journey. There is more to music than boring practice times!
