Who we are
Founder of Great Day for Music:I am a 38-year-old, born in Bonn with one German and one US-American parent, and have been playing, singing and dancing in orchestras, choirs, smaller vocal groups and dance classes for more than 20 years. After teaching Latin several years at university and school, I am now very happy to give big and little people at Great Day for Music that which is (right after family and friends) most important to me: the joy of making music.
Music is my passion. As a child I took dance, keyboard and guitar lessons. Later I sang in a choir at one of the universities of my native country Peru, and also as the frontwoman of a small rockband in Bilbao.
When I heard of Great Day for Music, I knew immediately that I wanted to join and support other parents, too. I am the mother of a five-year-old and a baby and I am completely convinced that music is the best gift you can give and receive.
I am an American that has lived in the Bonn area for the past 4 years. I have spent my entire life making music, starting with piano lessons as a child and later singing in choirs and acting in musical theater. I am excited to join the team at Great Day for Music and to share the joy that music has brought me with other families.
We thank Philippa Matthaei and Kelly Achenbach for their passionate teaching! They are currently taking a break - we hope they'll be back soon. :-)
