     I began my work with kids and music at Boulder Creek Elementary many years ago and still enjoy bringing a condensed version of my KidSong class into elementary classrooms.  I have worked in the primary grades at Gault (public elementary), numerous homeschool charters and several privates schools over the years. I currently serve the Kindergarten through 2nd grades at Bay View Elementary in Santa Cruz.

     Curriculum includes learning playful and important songs, a bit of group songwriting and exploring rhythm with creative movement and percussion instruments.  Multi-cultural songs and chants as well as circle dances promoting celebration of diversity and community connection provide an enriching program.

     It’s an honor to support the classroom teachers to bring music into their learning environments.  At times we collaborate toward age appropriate performances and service projects such as bringing the children’s voices to the elders at senior residences.

     I am available for one-time celebrations as well as series classes and most often book for half-school year or full year residencies.
