Margaret Christian teaches piano and Music for Little Mozarts/My First Piano Adventure.

Margaret graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree elementary and early childhood education. Margaret is certified in Iowa as a public school teacher, grades Pre-K through 6th.  In one of her last positions as a childcare supervisor, she was responsible for organizing and leading an in-service on “Music in the Classroom” for 70 daycare staff.  In addition, she is actively involved in sharing music in our local community and has taken music instruction for piano, flute, and guitar.

She sings in “Diversity Chorus”, a community group promoting peace and justice, and is eagerly awaiting the debut of another chorus member’s original choral work based on a poem the Margaret wrote, “In the Music.”  She has extensive experience working with young children and using music as part of early childhood education.

Margaret currently teaches first grade part time at New Horizons Academy. She enjoys gardening, biking, bird watching, playing the flute and piano.

She and her husband, Chancy,have lived in the Des Moines area since 1981 and has been teaching and working with young children for the past 40 years.


Music for Little Mozart’s is a group piano course designed to bring out the music in every young child.  Children explore movement, singing, games, note reading, rhythm, and more. This series is a comprehensive approach to musical learning that develops singing and listening skills simultaneously with an appreciation for a variety of musical styles. The materials in the course combine to create an exciting and imaginative atmosphere both in the lesson and at home.
