"What we are teaches the child far more than what we say,
so we must be what we want our children to become."
~Joseph Chilton Pearce (Teaching Children to Love)
All Music Together teachers complete the Music Together Teacher Training (25 hours), developed by the Center for Music and Young Children, in Princeton, New Jersey. All teachers also receive apprenticeships and/or mentoring from experienced Music Together directors.
Also, every semester, Music Together teachers update their skills in professional workshops covering not only musical elements but also child development, different learning styles, and classroom management. Teachers receive ongoing support and development through the above-mentioned workshops, certification training, teachers' newsletters, and an international exchange of ideas through very lively online social media groups.
