Our Teachers

 

To be a Music Teacher you need to be passionate about Music and the development of children. A Music Together® Teacher creates fun, informal, non-performance environment that engages both children and adults and supports each child's musical development.

All teachers with Music Moves Academy  have trained with the Center for Music and Young Children of Princeton , NJ and are registered to teach Music Together Curriculum. Miss Elena holds Masters Degree in Music from Russian Conservatory thus allowing her also to teach Music Moves Piano Curriculum  in addition to Music Together.
