Inspired by a life of music
The founder of One Heart Music, George Sellner, engages preschool students in a developmentally appropriate level filled with energy that maintains focus during class times.
George has experience as an elementary school music teacher and lead preschool teacher in a Montessori-inspired classroom, so he is devoted to integrating a musical curriculum that meets the child’s learning needs emotionally, socially and intellectually.
— A note from George —
I’m a proud father of a vivacious 8-year-old named Zoe. Along with my beautiful wife, Jadah (the co-founder and author of Simple Green Smoothies), we have aspired to take our gifts and make this world a more beautiful place to live for the next generations.
Since I can remember, I always loved making music, and i’s my passion to pass this love of music to kids. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area performing in theater productions, singing in bands, playing piano and guitar, singing in choirs, dancing Hip Hop, DJ’ing and making music any way I could.
I moved to Los Angeles to become a “rock star” and released two independent albums with rock bands and recorded two church worship albums with major labels. After Zoe was born, we moved to Kauai and opened our own creative play and learning center for the 5 and under crowd, called Little Sprouts Playhouse. I was certified as a Music Together Center Director/Teacher and worked as a creative arts camp director and music teacher for Hanalei Elementary School and as a choir director for All Saints Episcopal Church.
Most recently I’ve been a director, musical director and performer onstage with the children’s musical theatre company, Grand Performing Arts. My favorite moments have been performing as Cat in the Hat in Seussical the Musical, directing You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and playing Fagin in Oliver.
I’ve worked as an Actor/Educator for 13 years with Kaiser Permanente’s Educational Theater Programs, touring schools all over California, helping students make healthy choices. I’m a firm believer that in every child there is a genius and talents waiting to be ignited.
I look forward to making music with you and your family!
