Professional Development

Leaders in Early Education Music & Movement

Whether you’re a veteran educator or just beginning your career, a commitment to life long learning is critical for you and the success of your students. At Music Play Patrol, we work with students ages 1-12 in a variety of educational environments. We are constantly developing new programs and teaching methods to engage our students and we would like to share these methods with you.

What makes our professional development sessions unique is that we have developed programs specifically for educators and parents with limited music experience.  We specialize in working with librarians, early education instructors, parents, and after-school instructors. We have curriculum and teaching methods that will help you engage children using the best practices in early education.

We travel to locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Learn more about our professional development program and rates below.
