Hello wonderful Peppertree Parents!
My name is Emily Conkey and I am a certified Musicare Early Childhood Music Educator. I feel so lucky to share my love and knowledge of music with your children at the Peppertree Schools of Los Gatos!
Musicare is based on the Orff Schulwerk method of musical education. A typical Musicare class is composed of at least five musical activities such as drumming, puppets, stories, playing xylophones, moving with scarves, and so much more. Musicare also helps develop verbal and academic skills as well as encouraging artistic appreciation, emotional well-being, physical coordination, proprioception, and balance. We focus on developing key social skills such as sharing, taking turns, listening, and following instructions within a group. Our philosophy is that children learn best by having wonderfully fun experiences.
I am so grateful to have the chance to be a part of your children’s lives and to help them develop their musical foundation. Please feel free to contact me with any questions and have a wonderful day!
