Music with Kira
I grew up playing flute and went to college as a music major. In my mid-twenties, while living and performing in NYC, I discovered a music school teaching strings to very young children and I was amazed and excited. I became the music theory teacher for the younger kids and eventually created an early childhood Parent and Me program for babies and toddlers. It has been nearly 20 years since I first began teaching. I am married with children of my own and my passion and love for music and music education is as strong as ever.
