Music has always been important to me. I’ve been singing publicly since I was a little girl and I learned to play my first instrument, the clarinet, when I was in middle school. After becoming a mom I realized just how much children benefit from music too. Not only can music soothe a cranky baby, but it also stimulates the senses and promotes language development.
In 2004 I began teaching a music and story-time class at Symposia Bookstore. The class quickly grew in popularity and soon I developed a music and movement class specifically for infants and toddlers and began to offer it in my home.
Musicology 4 Kids is a very interactive and energetic class that explores a variety of music styles for kids. But one of the biggest appeals to parents and caregivers is that it has an open drop-in policy. You participate in a class when you want to, and you never pay when you don’t. Simply sign-up online and show up to class.
I’m also a founding member of the popular family-friendly rock band, The Fuzzy Lemons. I play acoustic guitar, tenor sax, clarinet, and lead vocals in the band.
