- Music for Yong Children™
I found Camerata Music in
1999 when I was looking for music lessons for my children. I was
impressed with everything Camerata offered. From rhythm and
movement for toddlers to preparing students for their ARCT, Camerata
would be able to provide an in-depth musical education for my children.
In 2001 I was approached to
join Camerata Music as another teacher was needed to meet the demand
for the Music For Young Children program. This was an opportunity
to combine my musical and teaching experiences. I taught in a
private school (Apostolic Christian Academy) for 5 years, where I
taught all subjects, including music, and had the opportunity to work
with all ages. I have taught at children’s camps, and put
together children’s programs in both academic and church settings.
I was the music director at a local church in Ottawa (Stittsville United Pentecostal Church). This was an amazing experience! I worked with both musicians and singers. I had the opportunity to help develop musicians, and put together musical and vocal arrangements. Over the last 7 years, our worship team has been invited to provide music at various religious events in Ontario, and some of our musicians and singers are now involved in the UPC Ontario Youth Band. After being the music director for 23 years, I retired from this position in 2015, but still continue to head Small Hearts, Big Praise, a children’s worship team.
This September 2017 will start my 17th year teaching the Music For Young Children program. Over the past 10 years, I have also had the opportunity to teach in many daycares throughout the City of Ottawa. Currently I am also teaching at Early Beginnings Multicultural Daycare (10 years) and at both locations for the St. Laurent Academy Daycares (5 years). Recently, I have also taught some music workshops for the CCPRN (Canadian Care Providers Resource Network).
I love introducing children to music! It is so exciting to see the children grow and develop in their ability and love of music. As my students move on to study with other teachers in the studio, I am so glad that I had the opportunity to start them on their musical journey.
