Jeannine's Bio: | Services: | Listen to Songs: | Testimonials:



Music has always been a large part of Knight Hall School's curriculum. It wasn't until we began First Steps in Music* with Jeannine Westbrook that our music education flourished! Our children and our teachers have developed a foundation in rhythm, beat, and pitch. They have a strong understanding of American folk music that has enhanced each of our classrooms in a way that no other music program has in the past.

Jeannine's strong understanding of development coupled with her amazing technical foundations in music has come together to provide an outstanding music program for young children! First Steps in Music* with Jeannine Westbrook should be required for all high quality early childhood education programs!

My daughter and I began taking classes at The Hartt School with "Miss Jeannine" just after her first birthday and continued through every semester until she was off to Kindergarten. It was my favorite activity that I have participated in with my daughter-I don't know who enjoyed the class more! Miss Jeannine not only has the most beautiful voice but has the kindest manner with children and engages them with ease.

My family first met Jeannine when our son, Ethan, at eight months old, joined her infant music class at the Hartt School of Music. He loved the music, movement, and instruments, but most of all he loved Jeannine who always made him feel so special! The activities were age-appropriate in every way and really helped establish his love of music which continues to grow to this day! We love to sing the songs and rhymes he learned in First Steps in Music and Ethan enjoys teaching them to his little sister! Jeannine is a master at early childhood music education and I highly recommend her classes.

Two of our children participated in First Steps Together with Miss Jeanine at the Hartt School of Music. Our kids loved the class - they danced to the music, learned new songs, and had lots of fun! We still listen to Miss Jeannine's CDs and still sing along!
