About Barb

Barb Occhionero ~
Owner and Director, Kindermusik with Barb ~

Having taught Kindermusik in Cleveland, Ohio, for over 15 years, I am thrilled to bring the top early childhood music education program to our wonderful community. I am passionate about teaching music to children of all developmental stages and abilities and I work closely with parents and caregivers to empower them to continue their musical journey at home with confidence.

What sets Kindermusik apart from other NYC childrens’ music classes is that it is age appropriate, research-based, and follows a set curriculum suited to your child. Yes, the benefits of musical engagement at an early age are proven to be beneficial for your child’s growth, but, perhaps just as important– Kindermusik is fun! You and your child will leave my class with a smile on your face and a repertoire of songs to sing on your way home.

Teaching Kindermusik has been such a great source of joy and I still keep in contact with many of the families I worked with over the course of my teaching in Ohio. I look forward to building new relationships and bringing the joy of music to your family here in Manhattan!
