Our teachers come from various backgrounds, but they’re united by a common passion: Sharing the joy of music with children and families in the Beaverton area!
All teachers have successfully completed the live Music Together® Teacher Training, which is built on research in early childhood and music development. We keep our skills fresh through workshops every semester and advanced trainings offered by Music Together Worldwide.
Kayla Hughes is the Director/Owner of Music Together Beaverton, a company she fell in love with from the first class she experienced! After taking the Music Together training with a friend, she took over as Director in 2008 when her friend moved away, and has never looked back! Having also just completed a degree in Music Therapy, Kayla knew the transformational power of music in a therapeautic setting and simply wanted to witness this magic every day, whether working with clients, families, or one day, playing with her own children! In 2010, Kayla attained Certification Level 1 from the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, NJ, having demonstrated outstanding achievement in teaching, musicianship, program philosophy and parent education, and in August 2016, she was awarded Music Together Certification Level 2 for demonstrating mastery of those areas. She is excited to help bring communities together through music.
