Welcome! I created this page with little children in mind, and adults, too, so that you can get a little glimpse of what happens in my Montessori classroom music circles. There are some short, "quirky" little videos that we had fun creating and I hope you enjoy them, too. Come and visit this page often as I continue to update the activities here, and soon I'll have a little flip book for your sing-along pleasure.
