How it began:

Kate Richards and Adriana Manfredi met in 2020 as two early childhood music educators displaced from their physical spaces for teaching due to the pandemic. They realized how much they love what they do and wanted to continue that work beyond the physical space. They wondered how they could help kids and families still engage with music and play in a virtual space.  With a shared goal and mindset, Kate and Adriana designed a free, interactive, online music class as a place for their work to continue. 

 

Emerging from the pandemic in early 2021, they were joined by colleagues from many intersections of “inspired music play” - from education, music therapy, Orff, play theory, and ACES family initiatives, to arts and health organizations, early childhood development, movement education, composition and improvisation, and more. 

 

As the state of the pandemic improves, Inspired Music Play is committed to continue engaging children and families in both virtual and physical spaces for 2021 and beyond. Their work to build a dedicated space from which they can collaborate, develop ideas, and grow is founded on their shared belief that music play for all is a fundamental right in early childhood- because Inspired Music Play sets a path of benefits for life.
