Meet Spunky the Monkey,
and Mrs. D...
"Holding the attention of 70 pre-school children for 30 minutes in one room
is no easy task, but Joni DeGabriele of Musical Moments was up to it."

Demonstrating communication skills
A musical moment
At Musical Moments we enrich the communication skills of young children through music
When children are able to communicate their feelings appropriately they develop confidence, positive self-esteem and strong relationships. This is the mission of Musical Moments where the focus is on building character in young children through music and movement. Even adults can understand the magic of communication and music. Watch our video to see how 105 year old Margie interacts with Spunky the Monkey!
Led by educator and performing artist Joni DeGabriele, Musical Moments combines over 20 years of teaching experience applying a new social-emotional music curriculum. Musical Moments is unique in the way music, puppets, movement and instruments are used to teach the lessons. We even have a new Music CD filled with favorite songs remastered by Mrs. D to fit our Musical Moments lessons.
Meet our Cast of Puppet Characters!
Our puppet characters are great at engaging children and they help us teach valuable communication strategies. The children really listen and focus on what the puppets say and how they interact. Teachers and parents alike tell us how the students practice the vocabulary and strategies long after the lessons have been taught. See what our clients say about us.
