Our Teachers

Meet the Teachers of Music Together with CCSA

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

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.

Interested in joining our team of teachers? We’re hiring!
