Ann Mentzer Harper, MMusEd, UofM and BMusEd, IUP

I began my musical career after graduating from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (BMus/Educ- Summa cum Laude/Validictorian) in 1988 and the University of Michigan (MMus/Educ- Magna cum Laude) in 1990. I taught music in the Prince Georges County schools in Maryland, United States for a few years. During this time I accompanied various children’s choirs at the Kennedy Center of the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. I continued teaching private flute and piano at all levels, from pre-school to adults at the Contemporary Music Center, Virginia before moving to the London area in 2003. I am extremely passionate about introducing music at the earliest possible age and believe it can have the most profound impact on young lives. Raising my daughter and attending Little Notes classes whilst being a working mum has further brought home the way in which the Little Notes programme is a super opportunity for any child to learn and grow both with their family and also engaging with other children of similar age. I remember one of my eminent professors saying “there is no better honour and privilege than introducing music to a young person.” I truly believe this and this is the reason that my team of class leaders and I are so excited to introduce music in a creative way to young families!

"Your love and passion for sharing music shines in every session. It is in some ways hard to put into words what we love so much about Little Notes classes, but I think it is probably all summed up as "a bubble of musical love"

"Your classes are so engaging and we regularly sing your songs. They are part of our day whether it’s tidying up, sharing, stopping or playing 5 little monkeys sitting in a tree!"
