Music has followed Anna wherever she has gone. She began as a serious fiddle competitor and grew up playing and singing music in her family band. Originally from northern California, she stayed close to home and studied voice and Music Education at CSU Chico. From there, Anna and her husband moved across country to Indiana to study Sacred Music at Notre Dame University where she was privileged to work with their Children's Choir, perform as soloist and chorister on student and faculty projects that took her as far as Ecuador. Her family moved again to Houston where she became a mom and was introduced to the Music Together® program. "My first daughter was 9 mos old, and I was instantly in love with the program! It was a relief to have found a community and support network based around singing, dancing and playing with my baby." Anna went through Music Together teacher training in 2014 and taught for years in Houston before moving to the pacific northwest in 2018. She now spends most of her days being mom to two amazing girls, exploring the area, enjoying the beautiful outdoors, and learning to live with the short winter days! "I am so grateful to get to teach this program that supports all aspects of learning, and look forward to meeting you in one of our classes soon!" We are thrilled to have Anna as a Music Together Specialist at Music Together with Mrs. Chrisi!
