Kathleen Winter – Director, Creative Beginnings Early Childhood Program

Peter Maggitti has been employed at Creative Beginnings as our Music Specialist since January 2010. He consistently engages all age groups from infants to Kindergarten in developmentally appropriate music lessons designed to promote creative thinking as well as a love of music. His lessons incorporate fun and learning using concrete props and movement activities, and are individualized where needed.

He has established wonderful relationships with all of the children, who just adore him. Parents report that a child who may be reluctant to come to school will bounce out of bed  when reminded it’s a “Mr. Pete” day, and often imitate him at home by singing and pretending to play the guitar.

He worked diligently with the children and teachers to present a winter and spring concert this past year. Parents were delighted to attend and experience the magic of Mr. Pete, and children were so proud of their accomplishments.

Peter’s commitment to children and passion for his art is evident, and we consider him to be a true asset to our program.
