DoReMi has designed a curriculum that is engaging and addresses all learning styles, resulting in classrooms full of smiling faces. Founded by Chris Marti, an expert in Early Childhood Education and Music Education, the company is supported by an abundance of expertise. She boasts an impressive repertoire of over 50 instruments, and in 2020, she received the Royal Conservatory Teacher of Distinction Award in recognition of her contributions to the field. Over two decades ago, Chris opted to pour her passion for music into teaching, manifesting in the creation of Do Re Mi for Kids Inc.
