 Two internationally respected Early Childhood Music teaching/learning approaches

                           are combined in orff-suzuki MUSIC MOVES classes.

We've been working with Guelph's youngest musicians for 40 years!

KAREN HAACK has been an Orff Early Childhood Music teacher for "30 plus" years.  She pioneered the Babies-4's ECM classes  in Guelph, during her many years with the Guelph Orff Music Studio.  She has given in-service workshops, and  teacher training workshops to preschool/daycare teachers and JK/SK teachers.  She has been involved with music programmes at the Guelph Public Library. She developed the Rhythmic Reading programme for the Suzuki String School of Guelph, and is on staff at the annual SOSI summer programme at Wilfrid Laurier University.  She is a "past" Kindergarten-Grade Two school teacher. 

 Her music training at McGill has been enhanced and supplemented with specific Early Childhood Music training.........  Orff, Kodaly, Suzuki, Montessori, Education through Music, Kindermusik, Musikgarten and Music Together.  She keeps up with "brain and music" research...... and is thrilled that science can now measure what good music teachers have always known.....  that music and making music is wonderful for all children, and their parents! 

Karen really appreciates the Orff approach.....allowing her to chose the music she works with in class, allowing direct instruction and improvisation, singing, chanting, moving with the music, and working with simple percussion instruments. Many other skills....social, spatial, sequential, vocal, auditory, kinesthetic....just about any skill.... are enhanced through a fun-filled, age-appropriate, holistic music programme.  During "her afternoons" she teaches Suzuki piano Books 1-3.  She feels that the combination of Orff and Suzuki music-teaching practices offer a wonderful way to work with children, their parents, and music!  Come and join us!
