What a Busy Summer!
Your Hummingbird Music Together teachers were busy birds this summer! We hosted three Sing and Sign events in Grosse Pointe jamming with amazing groups between 75 -100 people each month. We continued our amazing run of demos with the Canton Public Library and reached a new record with 138 people movin’ and groovin’ together all at once!
We also recruited a new teacher to join our team! A big welcome to Leah Fox, newly Registered Music Together Teacher to our teaching team! Here is more about Leah:
Leah has enjoyed music for her entire life, starting piano lessons when she was four and earning her B.A. in Music from Huntington College and her M.M. in Piano Performance from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Along the way, she has enjoyed singing in choirs, playing in bands, and performing in musicals. Music is such an important part of her life that when she had her son, Elias, in November 2012, she started looking for a music activity and found Music Together. Since they began classes, she loves how much music has become a part of their everyday routine. After attending the Music Together teacher training and seeing how carefully the music is chosen and the program is planned, she is even more excited to teach this fall!
With the addition of Miss Leah, we are now able to expand our Canton class schedule so check out the new class date and time options available starting this fall.
Fall is always a great time of the year to reset a schedule for learning and fun. We hope we will be seeing your families back in class and look forward to exploring new music together as your little ones continue to grow! Thanks you!
