Who Are Music Together Teachers?
Since 1987, thousands of parents, educators, performers, and music lovers have found meaningful work as Music Together teachers. Whatever your background, if you love children and music, you'll love teaching our program! Check out interviews with two of our teachers below. Kate loves teaching Music Together family classes, and Alexandra enjoys teaching the curriculum in school settings.
No matter where she is, Kate Battenfeld loves making music. But she is her happiest when she’s jumping and wiggling with a roomful of babies, toddlers, and their parents in a Music Together class. Kate is a Certification Level II teacher at Joyful Jumping Music Together in Carlsbad, California, and has been teaching since 1999. She currently teaches mixed-age classes, as well as intergenerational classes. We recently caught up with Kate and asked her a few questions about her life as a Music Together teacher.
Alexandra Farkas is a classically trained vocalist who has performed in Carnegie Hall and a Master's-level NJ certified K-12 general music teacher. But her favorite job is being silly with the preschoolers she now teaches as a Music Together In School specialist at two schools in central New Jersey. We recently chatted with Alexandra about a few of her favorite moments teaching Music Together.
