What Participants are saying:
“Very quickly into the workshop, Mary established a collaborative, safe, and supportive environment in which I felt free to play, able to experiment, and ready to grow.” – Princeton workshop participant

“ I was effortlessly led by Mary Knysh to make music with a group of people at a higher level than I thought possible. We sang, moved and played instruments forming a true community of sound. And finally, I felt like a Music Together Teacher, filled with the joy of making music, excited to go back and share that with my families and hopefully help awaken their own joy at making music themselves.” – Music Together Teacher

Then she is off to Japan for more inspiring presentations! We will get that schedule for all those in Japan!

“I loved your book The ABZ’s of Musical Instruments from the first time I picked it up. It contains so much of what I’ve subconsciously wished for in a children’s music book: * Exposure to world instruments, * themes of world peace and love, * encouragement to do music and face fears, * information about the background of instruments, * random fun pages like the Creative Color Chart, * total loving recognition of support with references emphasizing ‘community + gratitude, and LOVE of LIFE!’ “So thank you so much for following this inspiration of yours! I feel very grateful to have a copy of your book and know it will come in handy as a great resource in times to come.” —Erin S., Student Teacher, Bryn Athyn, PA
