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.
