nurturing young families through the joy of music

Since 2015, Half-Pint Harmonies has been a safe place for young families to have fun together and enjoy a high-quality music class experience. Using our researched-based curriculum, created by The Music Class®, we have helped hundreds of families nurture their young child's development through music and have created memories to last a lifetime.

Beginning with only a few families, our studio has become the favorite early childhood music class of the Piedmont Triad. In the beginning of 2020, we were proud to have had over 100 students enrolled in our classes. This fall, we are reopening our in-person classes in Greensboro, High Point, Oak Ridge, and Winston-Salem. 

A refined mission

To serve our families as they adjust to post-pandemic life, we are taking the initiative of turning music class into a community of young families who value arts education. By partnering with local arts establishments, we can offer music classes, facilitate community-building opportunities like play groups and parents night out, as well as create unique family events to connect our families to one another and with the arts community.

Scarlette Kerr

Scarlette Kerr lives in Winston-Salem, NC with her husband and two rabbits. She moved to the Triad area from her home state of Virginia in 2018 to pursue a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy with an Emphasis in Injury-Preventive Keyboard Technique at Salem College. After graduating in May 2020, Scarlette and her family decided to settle in Winston-Salem and started her piano studio, Music at 906, from her home. 

Scarlette received her Bachelor of Music from James Madison University in Piano Performance with an emphasis in Accompanying. While in Virginia, Scarlette was active as an accompanist, teacher, choral singer, and music director. In Winston-Salem, she is a member of the Piedmont Chamber Singers and also performs with fellow pianists for the community.   

As a piano teacher, Scarlette draws from the work of Edwin E. Gordon and Music Learning Theory and prioritizes “audiation” as an essential skill in learning how to make music, whether through singing, or through an instrument. 

Scarlette is devoted to the development of childhood skills in music from infancy through formal music lessons, and is super excited to a part of the Half-Pint Harmonies team!
