Ivy Leaf Studios - up and running!

Introducing Ivy Leaf Studios... 
making music to grow!

What is Ivy leaf?
Ivy Leaf is all about learning through music. We create music-based educational enrichment products and programs for schools, teachers, home-schoolers and families. These serve to supplement existing curricula with new, innovative resources including songbooks, music e-books, video and more. 

Using music as a language to communicate valuable lessons and themes, our core mission is to support academic development while cultivating  intellectual, emotional, social & personal growth. Music literacy, comprehension and appreciation will also be facilitated to that end.

With this goal of integrated, holistic education and growth, subjects  including science, math, social studies and the humanities are explored through music. Topics include Multiculturalism, American History, Chemistry, Philosophy, Literature, Current Events/Social awareness and more!
Enrich your classroom & life through music with Ivy Leaf ~ it's time to grow!
