The Teachers

Tyra has always had a love for music! She began at a very young age and was soon entertaining herself & others with voice and instrument.

Mrs. T, as she is known to her students, is passionate about music and the development of children. She was introduced to Music Together® when her son was just a baby. After sitting in the parent role for 2 years, she decided to take the training necessary to teach this amazing program. After teaching for 3 terms, she then pursued achieving the Cert. 1 level of training, which she received in July '07.

Tyra lives in Red Deer with her wonderful husband Darryl, and her two fantastic kids, Eric & Mikayla. She has continually enjoyed her experiences in teaching and imparting her love for music to the families in her classes. It is a real thrill to hear the musical development in her students as they progress through the program. She looks forward to continuing that journey with you and your children!

Apparently singing before she was talking, Jodi seems to have music in her blood! Jodi received her Bachelor of Arts in Music (Vocal Performance) from the University of Lethbridge in 1996. She has also been a member of The Youth Singers of Calgary for close to 20 years.

She has been a loyal Music Together parent for over four years, bringing both of her two children. Jodi is excited to introduce music to many more children and their parents.

Jodi lives in Blackfalds with her wonderful husband Chris, active son Hayden, darling daughter Tessa, and their three cats, Merry, Pip and Neko.

Music has always been a part of Jane's life. Her debut was at a very young age, singing “Hey Jude” ad nauseam in a grocery cart. Many Sundays after church found her behind the drum set, although a desire to play the piano quickly overtook that.

 

Jane has completed Grade 10 Royal Conservatory of Music piano and received a Music Diploma from Red Deer College majoring in Jazz Piano. In addition to piano and voice, Jane has studied some percussion and bass guitar, and also has experience as an accompanist and musical director.

 

Jane and her husband Eric have two children, Silas and Elise. She discovered Music Together as a parent, and loved experiencing the magic of music with her kids. Jane hopes to pass on her love of music to many children and their parents!
