Kari Kovick lives in the one-stoplight town of Floyd, Virginia. She moved there in 1999 with her husband and two daughters to follow her bliss: to share her favorite children’s music in a community setting where she could grow up alongside her students and their parents. She created Heart of the Child Music Education, a joyful, interactive music program, in the year 2000 and has watched it grow organically and persistently ever since. Her mission is to deliver high quality music education and consistent, positive connection for her students' social and emotional lives. Her CMN family is a vital part of her work, informing her song selection and supporting her heart-centered approach. You can read more about her at www.HeartoftheChildMusic.com.
