About the Owner/Instructor

LeAnne Nicholson Challenger holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music & Theatre from Wesleyan College and a Masters of Music degree from the University of North Georgia.  After traveling as an opera singer, LeAnne settled into her hometown of Clarkesville to teach music to children. After teaching music and theatre in private schools for 3 years, LeAnne decided to follow her passion of teaching and open her own music studio. She became a Kindermusik Certified Instructor in November 2017. Active in her community, LeAnne is involved in her church, local community theatre, and the Habersham Chamber of Commerce. Her goal is to share her love of music with as many young people as possible. 

 Music and movement classes in our community

With more than 35 years of experience as the leader in musical learning, Kindermusik International understands music’s unique ability to impact children (and families!) in profound ways.  Across private studios, public schools, and childcare centers in over 70 countries, children, parents, and teachers enjoy participating in Kindermusik’s fun, developmentally specific, and research-based music and movement classes. Parents also appreciate how enrollment in Kindermusik includes home materials, including their favorite songs, stories, and learning activities from class, so families can “play” Kindermusik wherever they go.

As a trained and licensed local Kindermusik educator, I love bringing the world of Kindermusik to our community. Each week in my Kindermusik studio, I lead music classes for families filled with singing, dancing, laughing, instrument playing, and storytelling—all backed by Kindermusik International’s team of early childhood music experts and the latest research on how children learn best. In addition, I partner with parents to support their role as a child’s first and best teacher by providing tools, tips, and resources to understand how (and why!) to use music and movement throughout the week.

From Kindermusik’s early childhood music classes around the world to the loving local community of families at my studio, together we put a song in the hearts of children.
