Hi! My name is Tammy Keorkunian, and I am the Creator and Director of Children’s Music Express® and Co-Creator of The Mindful Experience for Children
More about me ~
I have been teaching parent/child, preschool, and family classes since 1999 and am currently the owner and director of Children's Music Express, Inc. since 2006, a parent/child and family based enrichment program for music, movement and mindfulness in early childhood education.
As a teacher, I have taught parent/child music and movement classes, yoga and meditation classes, preschool music classes, grown-up yoga and meditation classes, including programs for children with special needs, and Buddhist Meditation on the university level.
I sing, play the guitar, and the African Djembe for over 20 years. I have my MA in Applied Meditation Studies from the Won Institute of Graduate Studies and BA from Temple University in Communications and Theater, with a focus on early childhood education, arts and business. I am a Yoga Alliance Certified Instructor in Inner Fire Yoga and Kids Yoga and Mindfulness.
Additionally, I have studied with Marianne Torbert, developer of the Kinesiology program, “Meeting Children’s Needs Through Movement” at Temple University. I have also studied with Shakta Kaur Khalsa in the Radiant Child Yoga Immersion Program, at the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, NJ, with Shiva Das in Hatha Yoga/Inner Fire Yoga, Karen Fairman in Anatomy, Dr. Martin Orimenko in Injury Prevention, Ed Zadlo in Ayurveda, and David Newman in Kirtan.
I provide biz/mentorship coaching for entrepreneurs and teacher trainings and workshops for teachers, parents, caregivers, and therapists. I engage and inspire audiences at birthday parties, special events, concert performances, and speaking engagements. My studies and experience in Early Childhood Music Education, Kinesiology, Yoga/Meditation instruction, and Buddhist Meditation have shaped my unique, warm, and energetic, upbeat coaching/mentoring programs, teaching style, and teacher trainings.
I am thrilled and grateful to be sharing and inspiring parents, children, teachers, and entrepreneurs!
