We have been in the forefront of music development and early childhood development in Charlotte since 1992. Our studio serves children from birth through adulthood and is located in beautiful Plaza Midwood. Kindermusik at music.4.life is Charlotte’s oldest early-childhood music program and has served well over two thousand families in the studio. We provide outreach to high poverty pre K children in Charlotte Mecklenburg schools and have an active program at Hemby Children's Hospital.
Valerie has dedicated her career to arts, music and theatre education. Her musical journey began with violin lessons in elementary school and led into choir, orchestra and musical theatre. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Lander University in Theatre Education with a minor in music and then spent several years touring with the Missoula Children's Theatre. After moving to Charlotte, she joined the teaching team at Children's Theatre of Charlotte and went on to serve as the Director of Education as the organization moved into ImaginOn. After 18 years at Children's Theatre, she decided to leave full time work to spend more time with her family. Shortly after, she completed her certification in Kindermusik and currently teaches classes in Matthews and Charlotte.
