Our Teachers

All of our teachers are passionate about music and guiding children on their own musical journey. They create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development!

Miss Kristin received her Bachelor's of Music in Music Education from the University of Dayton. Since graduating, she has taught music to children in a variety of settings, including teaching PreK-6 music at a children's home in Honduras, teaching bilingual family music classes in California, and most recently teaching general music to children ages one through twelve in a child care setting. She is so happy to have joined the Music Together of South Dayton family in 2016! 

Ever since she discovered Music Together, she has been hooked! She loves its quality, diverse music that keeps you singing the songs long after you hear them. Since having her first daughter in January 2017, she has developed an even greater love of Music Together as she uses the music in her bag of parenting tricks- from singing during diaper changes and bath times, to fussy times and play times, and ending each night with a lullaby. She is so excited to share the beauty of Music Together with you and hopes it will bring your family as much joy as it has brought hers!
