Music Together® teachers are united by a common passion: sharing the joy of music with children and families in our community!
All Music Together 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.
Karen Crane is the director of Music Together of Davis. Passionate about music and dance from a young age, Karen began playing the accordion in elementary school (a traveling salesman from a local accordion school knocked on her parents' door, and the rest is history!). She later took organ lessons, as well as tap and ballet classes. As an adult she has sung and performed for many years in community choruses, and currently is a member of the Davis Chorale.
In addition to teaching Music Together's Mixed-Age classes, Karen also is trained in the specialized curricula for Babies and Rhythm Kids; and she is excited to begin co-teaching Music Together Sing Shalom with Jody. Molly, now a college sophomore, is studying psychology and child development while working as a nanny.
Karen & Jody
A silver lining of teaching classes online, is that Music Together centers are able to collaborate with one another, and broaden the community of families we serve! During the Winter 2021 session, Karen (Music Together of Davis) and Jody (Music Together of Tracy) are team-teaching in order to offer both a Babies Class (for infants birth through 8 months) and Music Together Sing Shalom (a mixed-age class that celebrates Jewish themes, holidays and culture).
