Nutcracker Suite

mini music 


4 weeks of Montessori music lessons for bringing the Orchestra to young children

Celebrate the season in a musically  Montessori way! 

Four Weeks of Activities featuring Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet

I've created a really fun mini eCourse that is filled with music, drama, puppets, scarves, rhythm instruments, dancing, and even performing (if you so desire!) In four lessons, you'll train with me to learn the ins-and-outs of managing a group music circle, while offering lots of important skills-building experiences for young children. 

Activities are based on these principles:

  • Montessori Method: sequential, hands-on, sensorial, activities children explore through purposeful movement

  • Orff-Schulwerk Music Education: body percussion, rhythm echoes, repetition and dramatization

Each Lesson has an instructional video showing exactly how to present the activities to the children.
