Music in the Early Years

"Often a single experience will open the young soul to music for a whole lifetime."
- Zoltan Kodaly

As a teacher, I am always searching for new innovative ideas and creative teaching methods. A few years ago I became aware of the music education methodology of Zoltán Kodály and was inspired to learn more.


In 2017 I was accepted and enrolled in the ECME Certificate Program with the Royal Conservatory of Music in association with Toronto Metropolitan University. 

This program gives me the opportunity to study the three major Early Childhood Music philosophies: 

  • Émile-Jacques Dalcroze

  • Zoltán Kodály

  • Carl Orff


Toronto Metropolitan University provides me the opportunity to learn about the way a child's mind develops through early childhood through a course on Cognitive Development.

​I am excited to apply this new education to my own private lessons and to group classes for young children. Get in touch with me to learn more.
