Sing, Dance, and Play ~It's the best job in the world!
Do you have strong musical skills and enjoy working part time with children and families? Music Together® has local teacher trainings. See the full Teacher Training details. Also, please email Willamette Valley Music Together director Wendy Reznicsek with your interest. You never know ~ you could be the next person to join our staff!
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 Reznicsek, Director & Certified Teacher
Wendy 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 five. 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 is a Certified Music Together Teacher and holds a BS in Theater Arts from Portland State University. If you're curious about that proud family name, it's pronounced "rez-in-check" and hails from Hungary.
WVMT welcomes Barb Bagley as a guest teacher this summer! As neighboring Music Together center directors, Wendy and Barb have been collaborating on multiple projects for a couple of years, and they are delighted to bring the "Aurora Down Under" Summer Camp to children in Aurora this July. (FYI: Teacher Barb is the other voice in the podcast: Valley Music Minute.)
Barb is excited to share Music Together® with families in the Chehalem Valley. She attended Music Together classes in Portland for four years and watched her daughter, Lucy flourish in the program. Barb has been a registered Music Together teacher since 2015, and studied cello and voice for fifteen years. Now Barb is combining two of her passions, teaching and music. Since Barb worked as a public elementary school teacher and in theater programs for the past twenty years, it was a natural transition to become a Music Together teacher. Her love of children and natural silliness combined with her knowledge of music help children and grownups feel at home in class.
