Our Teachers

 

All of our teachers are passionate about music and the development of children. 

We create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.

Colleen loves music and loves kids! So when she took her oldest to Music Together® classes when he was a baby, she knew that she had found the "job" of her dreams. For over 12 years, Colleen has been teaching and directing at West County Music Together where she has brought hundreds of families together in community to share their love of music with their children and she has loved every minute of it!

She currently plays electric bass and sings in several Bay Area groups, and is learning to play the ukelele.

Liz has been an arts educator for the past 15 years and a musician, dancer, actor and storyteller since she was almost as young as most of our students.  As a mother of two joyously musical Music Together participants herself, she is continually in awe of the beauty and gentle power that this method of music education holds for all ages.  She is delighted to bring her passion and experience to Sebastopol's Music Together community and looks forward to singing with you in class!
