Music Together® teachers are passionate about music and the development of children. They have all been registered and highly trained with Princeton's Center for Music and young children.
They create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development. They thrive in seeing the children delight in musical play and the joy it brings the adults who love them!
Tracy is a registered music together teacher/director and a registered nurse. She and her husband, Ben moved to Colorado Springs in 2009. She started taking Music Together classes in 2007 with her daughter in Nashville, Tn. and from the first class, Music Together became part of her family's daily life! She continued to enjoy music, taking the classes here in Colorado Springs with both her children Sydney (5) and Nolan (3) and when the opportunity arose, she jumped at the chance to teach. She also jumped at the chance to direct and became the new owner of Pikes Peak Music Together this summer!
Tracy has always had a love for music but wasn't provided much opportunity as a child to explore that so teaching and facilitating this music gives her extreme joy. She loves being a silly big kid playing, dancing and singing with all of the Music Together families! Music Together has encouraged her to be a better musical role model for her children and she is thrilled to also be bringing that music to others that otherwise might not be enjoying music and that quality bonding time. Tracy truly believes that the JOY you express in music making today is the JOY your child will have in music throughout life!
