Emmy Brockman is an early childhood education specialist, science educator, and multi-award winning singer/songwriter. The Parents’ Choice Foundation describes her music as “sure to enchant and delight younger children and their parents.”
Emmy has been creating children’s music since she was a child herself – taking inspiration from the likes of Raffi, John McCutcheon, Laurie Berkner, and Robert Munsch. But, of course, Emmy’s greatest musical inspiration is the toddlers and preschoolers she works with everyday.
Emmy’s interest in young children expands beyond music. She has an MA in Early Childhood Education from Mills College, and is currently the Education Director at the WonderLab Museum of Science in Bloomington, Indiana. She conducts academic research on preschool teachers, recorded music, and technology – and her research and music are both award winning.
Before finding her calling as an early childhood educator, Emmy studied Anthropology and Geology at Oberlin College and Vocal Performance at the prestigious Oberlin Conservatory. She plays piano, guitar, ukulele, and accordion; and is an accomplished musical theater and opera performer. She has performed for child and adult audience around the world; from ambassadors in Ghana to tourists at the Grand Canyon (where she lived and worked as a park ranger – and music directed the beloved “Canyon Crooners”!)
Emmy is deeply passionate about early childhood education, with a focus on accurate and developmentally appropriate science exploration. She writes, lectures, and presents extensively on these topics – contact Emmy to bring her to your university, institution, or conference.
