Olivia Rubbo: Founder/Lead Instructor

Meet The Team!

Olivia Rubbo is a professional singer and actor with a BFA in Musical Theater from Emerson College. On top of performing regionally and throughout New York City, she has worked with children for over 10 years teaching music and movement classes, and has taken several courses on early childhood music development. 

Olivia deeply values the role emotional intelligence plays in creating a more joyous and fulfilling life. She’s always been grateful for the positive impact music has on young lives and thus saw a unique opportunity to establish a program that not only inspires musicality in children, but uses it to teach social emotional skills: how to be kind, grateful and present. Olivia brings her goofy self to each class, and gets such joy from creating a safe space for all people to explore their innate capacity for music and mindfulness!
