Our Teachers

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

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.

I became a Music Together parent in the summer of 2016 when my daughter, Lydia, was gifted classes for her first birthday. Lydia and I instantly fell in love with the program and continued to attend classes over the next year. As a parent, I loved watching my daughter grow and learn with music just as she had as a child. I grew up in a home where music was always around. My mom played the piano, my dad played the guitar, and everyone was always singing together. I became involved in musical theatre, band and choir in both school and at church, and attended theatre camps in the summers. When I found out a new teacher was needed for Music Together of Fayetteville, I was thrilled and knew I needed to make this my next adventure. This will be my 3rd year teaching. I am beyond excited to continue making music with the families in Fayetteville and surrounding areas!

Hello! I’m Alysia, but I go by Lysi. I graduated from South View High School in 2016. I am the second oldest of four kids. I work with the elderly at an assisted living residency. I love working with children and the elderly. I attend church regularly where I am a part of the worship team — I love to sing! I am very excited about becoming apart of the team, and I am extremely excited for my first class as a Music Together instructor!

Hello, everybody! I am the center director for Music Together of Fayetteville! I am excited to take on this role and to continue spreading music to the Fayetteville community. I have a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music with Music Industry Emphasis from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke. I currently teach piano full-time as well as attend East Carolina University as I pursue a master's degree in music so you may not see me in the classroom a lot. I will mainly be handling the business side of things for the next little while, but I leave you in good hands with the other teachers!

In class and at home, the real teachers are the parents and caregivers! Children are biologically wired to respond best to the model of the people with whom they have a bond of attachment.
