Make music with Gretchen
Hello and welcome to the GIFT studio! In my KinderGIFT program designed specifically for students ages 5 through 10, I combine a variety of pedagogical philosophies from KinderFlute, Suzuki, and my own 30 years of experience teaching music. Using movement, games, and storytelling, children are taught the basics of playing the flute and music fundamentals. Believing deeply in the idea that character development is essential for learning excellence in any field of study, I take the time to get to know my students and work hard to emphasize and model character traits such as kindness, cooperation, honesty and integrity providing an environment where all kids can feel welcome.
