Early Childhood Programs

Amy provides Early Childhood programs with a variety of services (teacher workshops in music and movement, ukulele classes, consultations) and the following school assembly or classroom programs:

Grow Your Own Music:  I play several instruments (ukulele, guitar, banjo), teach songs about the earth, gardens, insects, etc, using movement and puppetry. 

The Little Things:   Songs on small instruments (kalimba, banjolele, ukulele, harmonica, slide whistle, ocarina, mini-dobro and mini autoharp)  about small things!    I bring a variety of props and puppets with me for this fascinating and non-threatening program!

Holiday Programs:  Available upon request for Valentines, Spring,  Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Winter Holidays. 

Teacher Workshops:  Several kinds available, email amy@amyconleymusic.com to discuss the needs of your center.  Combining centers is a cost-effective way to have a workshop.  Movement, songs, literacy development, and fun!  UKULELE workshops for teachers also!

All of the student programs introduce several instruments, are suitable for children ages 0-8, and are hands-on, participatory movement-oriented programs.    Small or large groups, indoors or out.   Amy Conley has received training in Early Childhood Music Development from Music Together® in Princeton NJ,  The Longy School of Music, The Early Childhood Music & Movement Association, and The Children’s Music Network.  She now leads workshops for teachers as an Early Childhood Master Professional (Allied Professional) for NHDHHS Child Development Bureau, and has performed and taught music for young children and families since 1986 in MA and NH.

"I wanted to tell you how much we appreciate you and your program.  Each time I walk through I am so happy that the children have an opportunity to learn about music in such a fun, active, enjoyable way.  You treat the children with respect, draw a line where it is needed and provide a Monday that is always filled with fun!  Thanks so much." -- Sue Tyrie, Director, Bedford Village Morning School
