Let it Begin with Kindermusik … Why? Kindermusik is dedicated to using the power of music to help children grow during the years most critical to brain development. In these classes, children are welcomed into a playful and nurturing environment where they experience music of varying styles, genres, and cultures. They interact with other children and engage in movement, rhythm, and vocal activities that develop far more than just music skills. This developmentally appropriate curriculum fosters a rich education that primes young children for success in school and life. 

Lackney has been licensed and teaching Kindermusik since 2014. She has been teaching preschool level music at Lexington Avenue Baptist Church preschool since 2008, is the current music director at SS. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, instructs piano and flute, and is owner of Little Paws Piano and Music Studio on Main St. in Danville.
