About Music for Little Mozarts
Music for Little Mozarts was written by my music friends Christine H. Barden, Gayle Kowalchyk, and E. L. Lancaster to encourage a love for music in young children, ages 4-6, and to help them begin learning to play piano. My books help develop singing and listening skills while imparting an appreciation for many musical styles! My adventures and lessons are exciting and imaginative, both at school and at home. Your eager, inquisitive students will discover music and find out how much fun it is to play!
