    Grow your child into a confident music maker!

    This is an in-person program. Registration is required. This workshop is intended for children ages 0-5, and all children must be accompanied by a caregiver.

    Music Together-Central Oregon is an early childhood music and movement program for children ages 0-5 and the grownups who love them! The early childhood music curriculum has decades of research behind it, in both music education and child development. Our music classes help little ones develop their innate musicality and so much more! And because we know that young children learn best from the powerful role models in their lives, music classes show parents and caregivers how to help their children become confident music-makers just by having fun making music themselves.

She is a fourth generation musician and music educator who has over 24-years of teaching experience in grades Pre-K through 12. She has taught general music, choir, music theatre and orchestra classes in both public and private schools.
