Our Teachers

All of our teachers at Petite Musician are passionate about music, the development of children, and the support of your child's musical journey. During class, they create a fun, informal, musically rich social setting that supports the varied learning styles of both children and adults. All of our teachers have completed the Music Together teacher training, apprenticed with Mark Biesterfeld or another licensed Music Together Director, and are committed to guiding families through an exceptional music and movement experience every class.

It is our belief that music is an ideal medium to explore the world in which we live. Through the enormous range of rhythms, tonalities, silly sounds, languages and of course our first instruments: our voice and body, music becomes the perfect world for children and adults to explore, experience and have a great time!
