Music and Keyboarding

Student Ages: Casa, 4-6 years

Teacher: Ms. Heida

Teacher and Program Introduction

Hello, my name is Ms. Heida, I am the head-teacher of Casa 1 and a trained Montessori teacher.  I am excited to celebrate my tenth year as a Montessorian.  I worked as a full-time piano teacher for 10 years before becoming a Montessori teacher.  I have worked with students ages from 4 years old to adults, and from beginners to intermediate levels.  I have had up to 56 students in one year.

This year, I am excited to take part in the Music & Keyboarding Class for children ages 4-6 years old, in a small group of 8 children.  The program will offer students an understanding of simple music notations and rhythm.  We will work partly on the keyboard learning to read and play short songs.  We will also learn about rhythm through various games, singing and using percussion instruments like bells and tambourines.

Program Introduction

Our school will be having Robotics and Science program with STEM Minds and have a guest teacher from STEM Minds instruct this program.

STEM learning is about more than just technology.  It is about building critical skills, confidence, and adaptability in our youth so they can build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.  We believe that the best approach to STEM education is through hands-on learning that is student-driven.  Combining the power of a great teacher and industry knowledge, we engage youth in the fun and creativity of learning so they are able to discover their unique place in the world of STEM.
