Our Teachers

All of our teachers are passionate about music and the development of children.

They create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.

Although Heidi is new to Music Together, she has grown-up in a musical family and  knows the benefits Music brings and want to share that with others. 
As a middle school math teacher, she often incorporated music into her curriculum to make it easier to remember or simply to keep the students' attention. Her favorite part about working with children is watching them have that "AHA!" moment and thoroughly enjoying what they're doing. 
Heidi loves to sing, dance, and write her own songs. In school, she played the flute and percussion. She also performed in choir and musicals. Heidi currently leads worship at church and loves being musical with her own kids.
