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 15 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!

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!

Lanie has been singing, dancing and making music for as long as she can remember. She became a registered Music Together teacher in 2017, shortly after her son was born and she became especially interested in childhood musical development and cultivating joy as a life-long habit through song and movement. She has over 10 years of experience as a teaching artist, leading programs in theatre arts and visual arts. She has several professional theatre design credits to her name, and especially loves working with children’s theatres. Lanie has also been a children's party entertainer for over a decade, performing at over 1000 parties in the Bay Area, and (of course!) leading children in song and movement at every opportunity. After a brief period in southern California, she is delighted to be back up north, where she is happy her son, Liam, can get a feel for the country life near Petaluma.
