Our Story

In late 2015, founder Matt Fernald had to choose between a steady full-time job and pursuing his passion. He chose great music-making, learning, joy; and Golden Acorn Music was born.

Golden Acorn teachers bring music to where it counts most: early childhood. We partner directly with preschools to create music classes that are engaging, early, and regular. Not only do we support each child's early development, our work brings the joy of music to teachers, families, and (of course) children.

Our mission is to enrich schools and families with music in distinctive, lasting, and substantial ways, and to build a thriving organization that attracts, develops, excites, and retains exceptional educators.
