Our Teachers

Every Music Together® teacher must complete an intensive teacher training in order to be allowed to teach the program. A Music Together teacher has a special mix of musicality, creativity, and silliness that allows children to feel comfortable creating music of their own both in class and at home. Here are the wonderful teachers at Tonewood Family Music:
