Laura Doherty has been sharing her love of music with children since 1998 when she joined the teaching staff at the legendary Old Town School of Folk Music. After serving as director of the school's early childhood Wiggleworms program for more than a decade, she continues to teach today across the Chicagoland area. Her original songs and teaching philosophy engage the whole child - from working on gross motor skills with dance moves to easy to sing-a-long lyrics that help children learn about colors, animals and the world around them.
