Music at MMS

“Everyone has a song to sing, a dream to share.” Maria Montessori

Tyler MusicMusic has a rich tradition at MMS. We offer students a full repertoire of opportunities to perform and explore vocal and instrumental music. Our curriculum includes:

Music faculty members include Karen Morris, a certified Kindermusik and Orff method music instructor, Bernard DiGregorio, principal violist with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, and Ron Sowell, music director of Mountain Stage (artist-in-residence).

Our music curriculum includes an annual songwriting workshop with Mira Stanley and Chuck E. Costa, professional songwriters and educators who perform as award-winning indie pop duo, The Sea The Sea. “At Mountaineer Montessori,” the MMS school song, is one of the many delightful original compositions written by our students through this annual project.  We invite you to you to take a listen.

Concerts and arts showcases offer students opportunities to share their experience with the community. (Take a look at our 2013 show, which featured the premiere of  Life-Lights and other presentations.)
