Elizabeth opened Little Songbird Music Studio in the fall of 2008. Her passion for early childhood music began when she took a class on the musical potential of very young children while receiving her Master’s degree in Music Education from the University of Louisville. After graduating, she taught elementary music and high school choir. As she taught she saw ample evidence of the importance of early music education, and found that her true passion was helping very young children find their musical voice. Elizabeth also works with the Moss Dance Academy in Ft. Wright, KY as their vocal director and is involved in musical theater in various venues around Cincinnati. She loves singing in her church choir, and helping keep the art of choral music alive. Elizabeth has three creative children of her own, Agatha, Ginger, and Milo. She has enjoyed watching her own children discover music through this classes, and is thrilled that they have had the experience. Her husband, Mike, tolerates all the busy-ness like a champ, and works in web development. When she’s not rolling on the floor with toddlers or singing around town, you can usually find her cuddled on the couch watching British TV or reading a good book.
Elizabeth teaches most of the daytime Musikgarten classes and some evening classes.

Megan has loved music ever since she was little and her mom and dad took her to family music classes! Her mother swears she is responsible for all musical talent because of singing to and playing music for Megan while she was in the womb. Growing up, life was full of fun as Megan sang and danced with her sisters, learned piano and guitar, discovered a love for theater, wrote poems and stories, and was active in the youth praise band at church. These rich experiences shaped her life and gave her confidence and courage to pursue a variety of passions! After two years at New York University studying journalism, Megan transferred to Northern Kentucky University. She graduated in 2009 with three Bachelor’s Degrees in Theater, English (Creative Writing Emphasis), and Spanish. From being a summer church camp counselor to a long-term substitute teacher, Megan has had a lot of different work experiences but they have all revolved around teaching and kids.
