my music starts here

Dedicated to providing the very best music learning experiences to all young children regardless of their race, gender, abilities, location, school, childcare, or socioeconomic status.

Our training sessions provide you with a strong foundation in why music is a critical part of a young child’s education and best practices in implementing the program.

The sessions also give our team a chance to know you personally, understand the school setting and any challenges that you may be facing so that throughout the school year, our support and coaching is tailored to your specific needs. As teachers ourselves, we love getting to know each of you personally and always look forward to spending time together!

Songs & Stories is a heart-filled show that invites children into the incredible world of music and story, while sparking joy and inspiring all children to find their own path and reach their highest potential. Songs & Stories is currently distributed across Virginia by PBS member stations and produced by Mary and Mike Anderson, two Charlottesville music educators with a mission to bring the joy and power of music and stories to all children. You can learn more about their mission here.

Mary and Mike have over 30 years combined experience in education and present all material so that it is developmentally appropriate for young children, beneficial to children’s overall well being, and supportive of healthy brain development.
