Tree Of LIfe Music Together

How it all began....

When I gave birth to my youngest daughter, I decided to stay home. It was a very hard decision because I loved my teaching job in school and I studied and worked very hard to get that teaching position. But I could not commute everyday anymore and come home after 4:30 to a never sleeping child. I wanted to cherish every moment with my baby and make sure that I did not miss anything in her life. As she grew older, I wanted to do activities and classes with her, but there were no Mommy and Me type of classes around. When she was one and a half years old, I enrolled her in swimming classes at YMCA, but it was not as interactive as I wanted it for my baby. At home, I sang to her all the time, and we did a lot of musical activities, including tons of reading and playig on the piano. However, the social part was missing. There is a saying, "To raise a child, you need a village" but we were all alone.

One day my sister-in-law mentioned to me that she was taking her grandkids to these Music Together classes in Pocono and how much they loved it. She said that I should have checked them out. It was too far for us and we did not go. It took me about a year till I finally sat down at the computer ... and there it was... Music Together, the missing part of my and my baby's life! I knew instantly that it was an amazing developmental music and movement program but there was no classes in our area. I also knew that I was born ready to teach these classes and with my educational and musical background it was a perfect match. The next training was two weeks later in October of 2014 and I went to New York to three day training. It was a life changeing experience. The following spring 2015 I had my first Music Together location in the area. The rest is a history...

My youngest daughter is 7 now and she still sings Music Together songs and helps me as an "executive assistance". She loves to play piano and her favorite song that she loves to sing is from the movie "Moana." I still sing to her lullabies every night and I know for sure that she will cary my songs to her children too. I keep teaching Music Together now for two and half years and I fell in love with it.
