About Our Teachers

Our teachers LOVE what they do and are passionate about teaching Music Together® here in Wichita! They bring a high skill and deep passion to their work. You can expect a rich learning experience for your child each week, as well as the warmth, support, and depth you get from our teachers. We can't wait to get to know you and your family! 

All Riverside Music Together teachers have successfully completed the Music Together® teacher training, which is built on research in early childhood and music development. In addition, teachers apprentice for at least one session with another experienced teacher. We keep our skills fresh through workshops every session and advanced trainings offered by Music Together Worldwide.

Deborah discovered her love of music at an early age singing and playing cello.  She combined her love of music and working with young kids as a preschool music specialist in Florida and Virginia.  In 2016 she helped start the “Tinok Time” ( Baby Time) program at Agudas Achim Preschool, where she introduced littles and their caregivers to music, art and more.  Deborah and her family moved to Wichita in 2018, and loves living in College Hill with her husband, daughter, 2 boys and 2 dogs where life is never dull. She is thrilled to join the Riverside Music Together teaching team and share her passion for all things music with the community.

 

Deborah loves to learn about new cultures (especially new foods!) and has been lucky to live in France and Japan, as well as travel throughout Europe and Asia.
