Music Together® teachers are passionate about music and the development of children. We create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.
Music Together® teachers must participate in a three day intensive training process and be determined to be adequately skilled in order to teach in a licensed Music Together® program. Once a teacher has passed training and is employed as a Music Together teacher, there are frequent opportunities for continued training and education around music and young children.
Wendy is the director of Willamette Valley Music Together, and has been committed to performance arts and artists throughout her professional life. She started singing along with her parents as a toddler and began performing in public at the age of ten. She sang and studied music throughout her school years and into college and adult life, enjoying varied experiences including the Spokane Symphony Chorale and Encore Vocal Women's Ensemble in Tigard. Her love of singing simultaneously led her to the theater where she enjoyed studies in acting, lighting design, and more. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Theater Arts from Portland State University, and was the production manager at Northwest Children’s Theater and School 2005-2017. Having completed her Music Together teacher training in June 2013, Wendy is now a registered teacher and thrilled to bring Music Together to her home community of Hubbard and the surrounding area. If you're curious about that proud family name, it's pronounced "rez-in-check" and hails from Hungary.
