The fact that children can make beautiful music is less significant than the fact that music can make beautiful children. - Cheryl Lavender

Music & Play is a lively program of songs, nursery rhymes, and musical games followed by a healthy snack and time for play. Children and their accompanying adult are invited to participate in activities that encourage musical growth, and the development of social, language, and motor skills.

Making music is a multi-sensory process. It touches the heart and helps us work, sing, and play in a cohesive group.

Music time includes:

  • playing high quality Orff instruments
  • using drums and shakers
  • singing and learning nursery rhymes
  • varieties of musical styles (e.g. classical, jazz, world)
  • movement to rhythm

Joanne Diplock's love for early childhood music education began at the University of Manitoba where she earned a Bachelor of Music degree (University Gold Medal). For over 30 years she has studied and taught a variety of early childhood music programs, including Orff, Kindermusik, Suzuki Piano and Baby Suzuki.

In 2013 Joanne developed the "Little Miracles" music program (St. John’s Presbyterian Church, Winnipeg); it is still in operation. Ms. Diplock teaches in her home studio as well as at Children's House Montessori School, and is the music director at St. John’s Presbyterian Church.
