"I call it my Joy Job:" Miss Lynette

Kindermusik with Miss Lynnette
Jenison, MI

Music background

I earned my Vocal Music Ed. degree from Hope College.  I taught first in the Hudsonviile Public Schools, and since receiving my license in 1999, have enjoyed teaching Kindermusik.  

"I often call it my Joy Job!" 

The children and families are so much fun. I also direct the adult choir at Georgetown UMC where my classes are held. My husband and I have two boys of our own, both now in college. We know the busy-ness that accompanies parenthood and are grateful for each opportunity to take part in their growing up years.  

My hope 

My hope is that [making] music together will create a spark in you that will in turn, ignite a spark in someone else. We are all connected, and music is a great way to share our gifts, humor, caring and support with each other.  

I have gained so much in teaching by watching the growth and blossoming of students through music. I have learned about patience, cooperation, compassion and creativity by being involved with small children and their families.  

And so many days I finish up class with my face hurting from smiling so much!
