Aubree is an adjunct professor of music education at West Chester University and has 15 years of experience as a music teacher in the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District (Wallingford, PA). She holds both Bachelors and Masters degrees in Music Education K-12 and is currently working on her Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.). Inspired by her two young children and their immediate connection to music by way of melody, rhythm and instruments, Aubree began researching early childhood music learning theories and different hands-on approaches to learning and making music. As a believer in music and arts education, Aubree can't wait to share these concepts and provide parents with plenty of material to help their children develop a love and understanding for all styles of music.
As a mom, Aubree understands the importance of social connections for children and, maybe even more importantly, for parents. Tot Rock is an all welcoming class that not only educates young music lovers but also provides a positive, laid back atmosphere for parents to meet, connect, and share a cup of coffee at the end of class. In addition, Tot Rock classes are held at Windish Music & Productions studios in the West Chester Borough, the heart of West Chester. Plan an early morning stroll around town or make lunch plans with new friends. There are many options for parking and all of the restaurants and shops are just a block away!
