Our Teachers

  • “If everyone started off the day singing, just think how happy they’d be”

    Lauren Myracle
    Music Teacher
  • “Part of it is getting to work one on one with these kids. Rounding out their brain and watching them grow up at the same time. I get to develop relationships with these kids as they grow and get to share with them my favorite thing ever. They don’t get that with their teachers at school. Those teachers have a little bit more on their plate. Getting close to these kiddos is fun!”

    Jenna McSwain
    Spreading the Music Piano Teacher
  • “As teacher it helps to give back. I grew so much respect for my teachers. Having a dedicated teacher who is invested in their student is something that I always wanted to give back, because I received that. My teacher made me want to be a teacher and helped me see how important it is to expose kids to as much as possible.”

    Morgan Stewart
    Spreading the Music Woodwind Teacher
  • “Music can affect people in a way nothing else can. You can play music to someone who doesn’t have the knowledge but it still have a positive valuable reaction. Either it be their mood, emotion or intelligence”

    Evan Paydon
    Spreading the Music Electric bass teacher
  • “I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I spread the music, WE spread the music, it’s what we do. It is the most intrinsically valuable, powerful and rewarding experience you can possibly offer someone. Why wouldn’t you want to be a part of that?”

    Candace Crawford
  • “I started playing my first instrument when I was 34. I just went for it! I couldn’t bear to hear my self say ‘I always wanted to play the guitar’ again. And it was the best thing I could have ever done for myself. I would never turn back”
