Our Teachers

Meet the Teachers of Music For Families Inc.!

Our teachers come from all sorts of backgrounds, but they're united by a common passion: Sharing the joy of music with children and families in Sunnyvale, Palo Alto, Los Altos, Mountain View, Menlo Park!

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.
