Beat Boppers offer engaging songs, resources, and activities that inspire young children to actively participate in music. Our team is made up of a music teacher (Denise) and a singer/songwriter (Carole). Denise and Carole bring together many years of experience in the music field and share a love of creating music which inspires children to imagine, create, and participate. Denise is the Musical Director of a Kodaly-based youth choir where she teaches children ages five to eighteen years. She also currently teaches early childhood music and movement classes, school choirs and elementary music. Denise has worked as both an educator and consultant with families, kindergartens, schools, community music programs, early learning centers, tertiary training programs and music programs for children with special needs. She regularly presents workshops for teachers on the topics of Music Education and Children's Vocal Development. Carole is a gifted singer / songwriter whose music reflects her sensitivity, spirit of fun and creativity. She regularly writes and performs songs for churches, community functions and weddings, where her audiences enjoy her beautiful, heartfelt music. After 16 years of songwriting for adult audiences, Carole discovered the joy of writing for children. Her imagination, sense of humor and wit bring a delightful quality to her work.
At Beat Boppers we believe that: children should have the opportunity to explore and learn about music through playful experiences; children should take an active part in music-making - creating their own music, singing, dancing and playing along on instruments; music is an art-form that ALL children should have the opportunity to participate in and enjoy; and that children learn best when they are having FUN!
