Meet Our Teachers

All of our teachers undergo an intensive training through Music Together® LLC and the Princeton Center for Music and Young Children to become registered Music Together teachers.  All teachers complete a full apprenticeship before they begin teaching and once they have their own classes, they continue to receive the latest research from the field with ongoing Music Together workshops before the start of each new session. We are all passionate about music and the development of young children, and hope to inspire a whole new generation of music-makers who can sing in tune, move in rhythm and participate with joy and confidence as they create music with family and friends throughout their lives. We create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development. We love what we do!
