Teachers

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

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

Families love their warm energy, and appreciate the expertise they bring to each class!

Craig Van Ness has been a Music Together Director and Teacher since 1999 and has worked with thousands of children emphasizing actual music experiences through play rather than musical concepts. Craig introduces them to the pleasures of making music versus passively receiving it from CDs or TV and helps families and caregivers rediscover the pleasure and educational value of informal music experiences.

Prior to becoming a Music Together Teacher, Craig was a mortgage banker and spent 15 years in various commercial industries. Until being saved by the introduction to Music Together (thank you Nancy Parent) and it's unlimited possibilities and rewards of touching the lives of children and their families.
