Meet the Teachers of Music Together 916 Valley 

We are passionate about sharing the joy of music with children and families in the Elk Grove/Sacramento area!

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.

Min Zhao is thrilled to join Music Together 916 Valley and bring the joy of music, dance and movement to Sacramento area families.

Min grew up with her mom singing, dancing and humming Chinese folk songs. Making music and dancing at Home became second nature to Min. She went on to become a local opera singer as a teenager. In 1987, she was chosen as one of four singers to record the English teaching cassette for children published by Jiangsu Provincial Audio and Visual Publishing House. She has completed Level 1 Certification of the Orff Schulwerk method of early childhood music education. Min is a registered and trained Music Together teacher. She worked as a music teacher at a Montessori school. She taught the Music Together program to preschoolers and brought joy to the classroom. She is always touched by the way kids respond to music and their smiling faces!
