Marina has a broad experience working within the education structure and with culturally diverse students. She speaks, reads, writes, and sings in three languages, English, Ukrainian, and Russian. When she had her last child, Marina wanted to have engaging, fun, and interactive classes for the young baby. When she discovered Music Together, she was fascinated with the idea of creating these classes in her small community.
"I love teaching Music Together because it incorporates all I have to offer as human being - my love for children, my passion for music, my knowledge as a professional educator, my motherhood, my faith, and my service to the community. Like a mirror, Music Together reflects me and I reflect Music Together. I am very happy that I can share all of it with the community scooping the holy grail of our society - the mother and the child - and giving them the greatest gift, the love of music." Marina Kuchar, Tree Of Life Music Together center director.
