Martha joined the Children’s Music Ministry in 2004. In addition to being the Coordinator, she also directs the Hallelujah Choir (1st and 2nd grade). She has been on faculty as a Music Specialist at the Highland Presbyterian Church Nursery and Day School for over 28 years. She believes in the philosophy of hands on, child centered, and play-based learning, and brings a rich understanding of Orff Schulwerk to our music ministry. She remarks that “Music is a vehicle for joyful exploration with our treasured young. Music draws us together. It is community-building, and it is a lovely way to come closer to God. Music helps us learn to pray and rejoice!”
