About Your Kindermusik Teacher…
Ellen Singh’s lifelong passion and joy has been her work experience in the music field alongside young children and their families. She has been a licensed Kindermusik educator since 2004. A graduate of both the University of Evansville (B.S. in Sociology and Interpersonal Communications) and the University of Illinois (Master's Degree in Social Work with LMSW licensure), she has a broad spectrum of educational and clinical experiences including child development, group dynamics, and relationship building which are essential in teaching music to children and their families. Equally, she has gained widespread networking/public relations and entrepreneurial experiences as her Kindermusik business has grown and continues to develop throughout the years.
Musically, she has her foundations in many years of piano and flute lessons as well as having taught herself to play electric bass guitar. She has performed in various groups throughout high school and college. Additionally, she has enjoyed the opportunities of performing (flute) in her church and in various community orchestras throughout the country as well as teaching flute lessons.
As a licensed Kindermusik educator, Ellen brings the love of music, movement, and learning to children and families in her community and the region, in partnership with the SIUE Suzuki program, in her Kindermusik program. She taught the SIUE Suzuki Program Pre-Reading Music Theory class from 2005-2011. Currently, she is an adjunct professor for both SIUE and Lewis & Clark Community College where she teaches a class entitled, “Music for the Preschool Teacher”. Her greatest love is being a wife and mother of her four children.
