Our Teachers

Meet the Teachers of Mindful Music!

Our teachers come from all sorts of backgrounds, but they’re united by a common passion: Sharing the joy of music with children and families in the Loudoun area!

All teachers have successfully completed the live Music Together® Teacher Training, which is built on research in early childhood and music development. We keep our skills fresh through workshops every semester and advanced trainings offered by Music Together Worldwide.
