My first musical memory is of my grandmother playing her piano while my
sister and I sang songs. When I was 6, I began piano lessons and
continued for 10 years. I was actively involved in choir, theater, band
and even some color guard from grade school through high school. Music
is a constant in my life and I have used it effectively throughout my
career with teaching thus far.
I have a degree in early childhood education. I have been working with children my entire life, in daycare, schools and as a professional nanny. In all of my experiences and relationships with children, I have used music as a development and learning tool as well as for fun. At first, it was purely for my personal love of music and then it became obvious that this was a wonderful way to teach kids and have fun at any time, in any situation.
I moved to Austin from Seattle in 2006 and was ecstatic to find Music Together®. Since moving to Austin I married a wonderful man, becoming a step mom to Elliott, and have had two more children, Lila and Zane. It has been amazing to see all 3 of my children grow through the program. Music Together has definitely brought music into our home on a daily basis.
I hope to share the same experience with Austin families.
