Emma Zen (founder & director)

Hi! My name is Emma.

I love making music with children and their carers/teachers/parents.

My background is in both music and education with qualifications and experience as a primary & early childhood music specialist, piano tutor, conductor, guest speaker and workshop presenter.

I have a special interest in combining the Kodaly methodology with Orff & Dalcroze approaches. Also, I can see how the performing arts (music), visual arts (art) and language arts (books) are all connected for nurturing young children’s expressive and aesthetic awareness.

Attending regular professional development in the form of workshops, conferences and further study, I believe keeps the content and delivery of our early childhood music education program fresh and innovative.

I enjoy watching the transformative effect, active music-making can have on the developing child and their emerging musicianship.

I hope you find the journey into active music-making to be rewarding!
