Our Music Together® Directors

All of our directors recognize the value of music in the lives of young children—and the importance of parent participation in the learning process. Here's what some of our center directors, who also teach Music Together classes, have to say. Contact us to learn more about how Music Together can become a part of your professional life, too.

Actor Leslie Pratt

I just felt like the heart of the company resonated with me. It felt so authentic—the company, what Music Together stands for, and what it is—and it’s just absolutely inspiring. So I took the training and was immediately ready to jump on the director path without being an apprentice or teaching for someone else first, because there wasn’t anyone in my immediate area offering Music Together.

Actor & Teacher Amanda Munice

I was eight months pregnant when I first learned about Music Together from a college friend who was opening her own center in Pennsylvania. It was kind of serendipitous! Here I was about to have my own infant and about to meet a whole bunch of moms. After I had my daughter, I took the teacher training and fell in love with Music Together even more.

Dancer & Parent Jackie Jacobs

I was living in Brooklyn and a friend of mine was taking her daughter to Music Together classes. She told me about it, and I knew immediately that that was something I wanted to do with my son. He was eight months old and very responsive to everything in the class.

Opera Singer Lizz Hodgin

I first heard about it from a friend who teaches Music Together. After I had my son, Daniel, she gave us a Music Together songbook and recording for Christmas in 1995. Before this, we enjoyed singing “Wheels on the Bus” and a few other familiar songs, but I was frustrated. Here I was an opera singer, a musician, and I didn’t know what to do in music with my child. I started playing the songs for Daniel and he went wild, he loved it! He responded to the music more than anything else that the special education programs suggested. (Daniel was born with Down Syndrome.)

Suzuki Violin Teacher Karen Roth

Actually, I saw the ad in the Suzuki Journal. At the time I was looking for a way to expand my teaching in a job that would be more daytime teaching. I have children who are school-age, and being a Suzuki teacher or private instrument teacher usually means after school, evenings and weekend teaching. And so I was looking for a way to be doing more daytime teaching. I loved teaching the younger students in the Suzuki program, the four- and five-year-olds, so the thought of teaching even younger children was very appealing to me.
