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’s interest in young children expands beyond music. She has an MA in Early Childhood Education from Mills College, was formerly the Education Director at the WonderLab Museum of Science in Bloomington, Indiana, and works currently as a curriculum designer for Sesame Street. She has conducted 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. Emmy currently lives in central Connecticut.
