I understand that frustration you feel when you’re trying to fulfill your preschool’s mission to provide a well-rounded education, but there’s one major roadblock that keeps popping up: music. It’s an essential part of early childhood education, a critical component in cognitive development. Yet, your preschool teachers are not trained musicians or educators. They struggle to incorporate music into their classes effectively and confidently. The result? Uninspiring music classes that fail to capture the children’s interest or cultivate their potential.
You want to offer your students an engaging and enriching musical experience – it’s crucial for their emotional, intellectual, and social development. But when the classroom teachers lack the necessary training, delivering on this promise becomes a daunting task. This gap in expertise leaves your teachers feeling overwhelmed and incompetent; it leaves your students deprived of an essential learning opportunity.
This roadblock isn’t just about teaching music; it’s about equipping your students with skills that will serve them throughout their lives – creativity, discipline, confidence. The PRISMS curriculum can train teachers to deliver effective music classes to help your students achieve their potential!

There are 6 main PRISMS™ Content Areas


Children learn the names of small percussion instruments and how to play them correctly. They copy and create different rhythms and explore sound as it relates to music.


Rhythm chants help develop a sense of beat, promote language acquisition, and increase vocabulary. Chants that include movement instructions reinforce the musical concept of the unit.


Colorful images and engaging text introduce children to instruments and ensembles from of the world. Children compare and contrast instruments and cultures as they explore world music.


Children’s songs from around the world support the monthly topic with an array of melodies and rhythms. Songs are sung in a range suitable for children’s voices. Ideas for expanding or improvising songs are provided.


Carefully chosen movement songs, from award winning children’s musicians, teach about rhythm, beat, tempo, and more. Movement is an ideal way to reinforce musical concepts!

Hear what childcare providers, parents, and music educators have to say about PRISMS™

The children in my childcare loved our weekly music lessons. Then the pandemic hit and we could no longer have a music teacher. We were so happy to find “PRISMS” Although none of the teachers have any music training we are able to use PRISMS to offer music to our children weekly. Through using the simple lessons from PRISMS the children are experiencing the joys of music and learning about notes, instruments, rhythm, and songs. Music is such an important part of early childhood development. I am so glad that we have PRISMS to helps us incorporate music into our weekly curriculum.

Wow! I am so impressed with the entire curriculum! What a gift this is for all educators - access to high quality, clear, concise, and accessible materials. I cannot recommend PRISMS enough for any musical setting!

The PRISMS curriculum is one that keeps both children AND teachers in mind. An abundance of resources for teachers allows them to be really comfortable teaching, even those without formal music education. While aligning with California Department of Education Preschool Foundations, children explore a wide variety of sounds, concepts, and activities through this creative curriculum. My favorite part is definitely learning all the instruments. It does not just focus on Western instruments, but explores instruments from all over the world, including many that even most musicians would be unaware of! Everything is well-thought and clearly organized, I give PRISMS my highest recommendation!!

About Yvonne, the creator of PRISMS™

My name is Yvonne, and I am an Early Childhood Music Teacher, Private Piano Teacher, and the creator of PRISMS™ Preschool Music curriculum. For over 20 years, I’ve dedicated my life to teaching young children the joy of music. I have seen firsthand how it can light up a child’s face, spark their imagination, an instill in them a love for learning that will follow them all through their lives. But there was one problem – I couldn’t be everywhere at once.
While every day brought the satisfaction of seeing young minds ignited with the passion for music, I found myself constantly wishing for more hours in a day or even better yet, a way to clone myself. There were so many centers that needed help with their music programs and not enough time for me to reach each one personally.
One day it came to me! What if, instead of trying to spread myself thin across multiple centers, I could equip already established teachers with the skills they need to teach music effectively?
And thus began my journey of creating PRISMS™ – a complete program made for anyone to teach preschoolers music, no experience required! It was an ambitious project that had never been done before but one driven by my love for music and the desire to make music accessible for every child; I plunged headfirst into this endeavor.
Instead of turning down teaching requests because I didn’t have availability in my schedule, now though PRISMS™ I can provide valuable music education resources right into the hands of teachers who are eager to bring the joy of music into their classrooms.
This innovative approach allows me not only to reach more children but most importantly gives teachers the confidence and knowledge they need to teach music effectively. Suddenly, the daunting task of providing excellent music education in every preschool has become a feasible reality!
While it wasn’t easy creating PRISMS™, every late night spent perfecting lesson plans, every hour dedicated to recording and editing tutorial videos, every hour spent researching and selecting the perfect resources, and every ounce of effort poured into this project was worth it because I know that through PRISMS™, I am making a real difference in the lives of young children.
