Early Childhood (Smart Start)

Julie Martin has been teaching music to the French speaking children of Toronto for over twelve years. She is the founder and Director of Le Petit Atelier, providing music programs to daycare centres for toddlers and preschoolers, and in elementary schools for Kindergarten to Grade 6 students. Julie teaches the acclaimed ‘Bon Départ’ (Smart Start) program at the Royal Conservatory of Music, and is a close collaborator in the development of the ‘Bon Départ’ curriculum for three, four and five year old children.

Julie also leads training workshops for elementary school teachers and early childhood educators. Along the years, she has developed her own French repertoire of dynamic and engaging musical activities exploring voice, movement, percussive instruments, basic music concepts, and introduction to music theory. The principal component of her approach? it’s always fun!
