Megan Deneault, Owner
Megan Deneault is passionate about the connection between music and positive early childhood development. It was this passion that led Megan to attend Arizona State University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude, with degrees in Early Childhood Development & Education and Music Performance. She believes all children, regardless of age and developmental stage, can benefit from music and is determined to educate parents on the tangible benefits music has on a child’s cognitive, physical, emotional and social development. Through her education and over eight years of teaching experience, Megan has observed these benefits first-hand and is dedicated to facilitating an enriching musical experience unlike any other. Megan delights in the ability to encourage early development with music and play. She is eager to share this passion with your family!
