Letter to the families...

My name is Emma Jude and I am a professional musician based out go Brooklyn New York.  In addition to music, working with kids has always been one of my biggest passions.  It has been so exciting bringing these two things together over the years. 

 

From 2011-2015 I attended Nazareth College and majored in Communications Sciences and Disorders with a minor in music.  During that time and immediately after graduation, I received over 60 hours in clinic experience, worked in the public school system, became a teaching assistant at Jowonio Inclusive preschool as well as at the North Western Center For Talent Discovery, and volunteered at the Hickock Brian Injury Center.  Throughout these experiences, I would continually use music as an innovative tool.  During this time, my co-workers gave me the opportunity to have weekly music sessions with the kids.  This was the time that my official “Family-Sing-A-Long” began taking form.  

At the end of 2015 I released my first album, “The One Person Game,” and I began traveling as a professional musician.  In 2016 I spent a brief time in Bozeman, Montana and worked at a start up company called “Dino Drop-In Daycare.”   I would perform daily music sessions with the kids while modeling for the teachers how to run the sessions once I was gone.  I went on to run a similar  model at multiple preschools, start ups and libraries across the country.

 

Between 2015-2019 I traveled around the world and worked as a guitar soloist for Carnival Cruise Lines. I worked my way up through the company until I was ranked as the number one guitar soloist in 2018.  I was then selected for the inaugural season of their newest ship, the Carnival Horizon.  During this time, I performed my “Family Sing-A-Long” onboard for groups ranging from 5-300 children.  In addition to  my music curriculum implementation program, I would perform this traveling show at schools, festivals and private parties around America in between my traditional shows at music venues and cruise contracts.  

In 2019 I moved to Brooklyn, New York and began working as a music teacher for Beansprouts Nursery School in addition to taking on a small group of private lesson students.  Once Covid hit in 2020 New York shut down and I adapted all shows to an online format.   I created a full virtual music curriculum for Beansprouts which then grew into zoom parties and eventually my very own private music business online.  

As the world begins to open back up,  I have been expanding my in person music sessions while still maintaining a variety of virtual music classes.  On February 2nd, I will be fully vaccinated but I will continue to follow strict Covid safety precautions including, wearing a mask, remaining socially distant in group settings and sanitizing all instruments/materials after each individual use.  All music session options are listed below.

For more questions, you can email me at musicbyemmajude@gmail.com.  I look forward to making memories with you and your children. 

 

Sincerely yours,

Emma Jude
