A Song from the Heart describes the development of Lorna Lutz Heyge's teaching philosophy-the philosophy that brought the original Kindermusik (1974-1994) from its beginnings as a German neighborhood music school program to its early days in Greensboro, North Carolina. Through a series of sound, intellectual, well-researched revisions and additions, Lorna Heyge created the holistic education program that is Musikgarten (1994-present)-holistic musically as well as educationally-for children ages birth through nine. Lorna Heyge's teaching philosophy is concerned for the education of children from all walks of life. Her Pathway to Literacy, found in the Musikgarten curriculum, addresses all the aspects of learning, making it important to both parents and educators. Her work made a significant contribution to, and continues to influence, the field of music education.
