MUSIC TOGETHER: FEATURED TEACHER: Michelle Johnson
 
Come try a class with her or any of the other wonderful MUSIC TOGETHER teachers throughout the month!
Michelle has been enjoying the wonderful Music Together curriculum ever since she took her daughter (Madelyn) for the first time to a class 7 years ago in Southern California. She was inspired to become ateacher in 2007 after her 2nd child (Dylan) was born and was thrilled to find an outlet for her lifelong love of music, teaching and children!
    She has been making music professionally since childhood. She received her B.F.A. degree in Musical Theater from The Boston Conservatory. On the East Coast and in L.A., she engaged in various theatrical, recording & choral projects. After relocating to the East Bay area in 2009, she continued to teach but found her way back to the stage in 2011 as Glinda the Good Witch (Lescher Ctr.-Walnut Creek) in The Wizard of Oz. After spending time w/ so many munchkins, she decided to have one more of her own in 2012. She is looking forward to giving her baby (Evelyn) the same fantastic exposure to learning through the program that she experienced w/ her other 2 children. Now, 6 & 7 years old, they can often be seen and heard making up their own songs and dance moves…which is music to Michelle’s ears & eyes 🙂
She plays autoharp & piano in her classes.
In addition to being a Registered Music Together teacher Michelle has been also been awarded Certification Level 1 from Music Together® for outstanding achievement in teaching and articulating of the program.
JOIN OUR BOOKCLUB!

We select a book, enjoy reading it for a month and then select a restaurant to nosh at so we discuss it!
It is a night of good food, conversation & an opportunity for some adult conversation & trying a new restaurant!
This Month: “The Vacationers” by Emma Straub
 
SYNOPSIS: The Post family is heading to Mallorca for a two-week holiday, and they’re bringing along a lot of metaphorical baggage. Franny is a frazzled food writer and enraged wife, her husband Jim is a disgraced magazine editor who’s been let go for “inappropriate behavior,” their daughter Sylvia is weeks away from her freshman year at Brown and determined to lose her virginity in the interim, and their twenty-something son Bobby is, well, a complete mess. Straub can really turn a line and her social commentary is on-the-money. What’s more, Straub genuinely wants her characters to feel happy and fulfilled-and that sentiment ends up infusing The Vacationers with a lightness and whimsy. It’s rare to find a novel that seeks joy for its protagonists but doesn’t tack a saccharine bow on every interaction.
 
All are welcome, email:info@hhhints.com to join!
Tues. June 24th at 7:30 pm
