Services:




Welcome and thank you for your interest in my work! At present I am only available for hire by preschools or other childcare facilities. My schedule for Fall 2010 is almost full. I currently have only Mondays available to offer Nursery/Preschool music and movement classes in the South Windsor area. (I live in town and have long commutes the other days of the week.)

Please email or call if you are interested in having me come to your school to do a free demonstration class. If you decide you would like to hire me, my fee is $50/hour. I usually come to each school on a weekly basis to teach between two and five 30 minute classes but I can be flexible as to the number, frequency, and duration of the classes.
