Who We Are
We help children and parents grow together.

Mom and Me Music is a sister school of Ji-Eun Lee Music Academy with a special focus on early childhood music and movement education.  Our expert teachers have decades of teaching experience with toddlers and pre-school aged children.  They love to teach.  They love children.   And they love music.  Our dedicated early childhood room is warm, inviting, fun, and offers multi-sensory stimulation for toddlers and preschool aged children.  We not only provide children the building blocks to learning music, but we teach parents (mostly moms, but dads are welcome too!) how to teach music to your child.

Our curriculum of choice is a program called Musikgarten.  We chose this curruciulum, because we believe in it's pedogogically sound approach to teaching music.

This is what we believe

  • All children are musical.
  • Music meets the needs of children.
  • By using only the highest-quality educational resources and instruments, we can help deepen a child's appreciation for music and the natural world around him, building a foundation for life-long music making.
  • Providing an appropriate musical experience and following a carefully sequenced approach to music reading allows a child to participate fully in musical experiences of all kinds.

Our approach to music education is fun for children, parents, and teachers. As a result of our sequential pathway to music education, children can become independent, thinking musicians. To foster music literacy, Musikgarten offers a comprehensive early childhood program that spans the first nine years of a child's musical development. Children love the progression from semester to semester, as patterns and songs are repeated and built upon, addressing students' needs at each level. The Musikgarten experience culminates in group piano lessons.

Musikgarten teachers are the key to bringing our curricula to children and parents. Teachers experience the joy and satisfaction of helping children become expressive musicians. Excellent teachers are important partners for parents in nurturing a child's development in every sense and merit the fullest and best support we can offer them.
