At Music Together of Salem,
we have just completed another session of fun family music-making! As we
enjoy these last days of summer with family and friends, I would like to share
my heartfelt greetings with all the families whohave participated in one or more classes in our center.
I am very enthusiastic about the great opportunities that lie ahead in growing
the presence of Music Together® in the Marblehead, Salem & Beverly communities!
What has always motivated me
as a musician and teacher is the realization of how powerful music can be to
connect people. When I found myself in a Music Together class for the first
time with my son in Cambridge, MA, I knew I had discovered something that would
allow me to create a positive impact wherever I’d be. My son was already 3
years old when I first got acquainted to the program, but even so he got a lot
out of it. Either on an opportunity the teacher created for him to improvise
with words, ideas or sounds or by singing along with other children and me, his
In my first two semesters I
often had watery eyes, watching my son and the other children connecting through
music, being comfortable around each other and singing the goodbye song.
I hold on to these early
feelings that brought me to love Music Together, as I make all the efforts to
bring and create this same perspective to my classes every single time.
If you are new to Music
Together and are considering registering for one of our classes, I encourage
you to navigate our entire website, as well as the Music Together
national website for a richness of
information about this wonderful program and its philosophy.
In the meantime, enjoy the
beginning of a new season ahead and please feel free to contact me at any time
with questions or comments.
