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.

After attending Music Together® classes as a parent for 5 years with both of my own children, it was a very natural progression to take the Music Together teacher training program and begin teaching in the summer of 2006. In the fall of 2008, I became a Certified Music Together teacher by completing Certification Level I training. I have a BA in Theater and Education and an MFA in Theater For Young Audiences.  

I have been singing with One Voice Mixed Chorus for the last 8 years. I believe my background in Musical Theater and Theater for Young Audiences enhances my teaching of Music Together classes, as both are based on experiential learning. I love making music and singing with families and I look forward to having you and your family in class.

Darcy’s love of music and children began at a very young age.  As a teenager, she was one of the most popular babysitters in her small Iowa town and as soon as she aged out of Vacation Bible School, she was asked be the music director at age 13. In college she was a Speech/Theatre major with a music minor.  Currently, Darcy is a massage therapist and a nanny/childcare worker and she has been singing soprano in One Voice Mixed Chorus for 18 uninterrupted years.  She had an opportunity to attend a Music Together class with her nanny children and took the training to be a teacher the as soon as she could.  Darcy has been having a ball as a Music Together Teacher and looks forward to playing with you and your children in class.
