Meet Our Team!
center director & teacher
Ms. Mandy opened Music Time of Milford in the Fall of 2015. She is overjoyed at how our amazing community of families has grown since!
Mandy studied vocal performance at Grand Valley State University and spent several years performing and teaching in the Grand Rapids area. In the summer of 2015, Mandy completed Music Together® teacher training with Lili Levinowitz, Ph.D. (Director of Research, Music Together LLC, coauthor of Music Together, and Professor Emeritus at Rowan University).
Mandy lives in Milford with her husband and two daughters. She believes that music education starts with the family. She hopes that all her Music Together families are making "forever-memories" with music at home.
Previously, Amy was a pastry chef from New York, but music has been a huge part of her life since childhood. She was in all the musicals, choirs and choruses in school! She has almost twenty years of experience working with children doing everything from virtual teaching, babysitting, to being a school camp counselor.
Amy fell in love with the Music Together program while taking her son to Ms. Mandy's classes, and knew she had to get more involved! She loves to share her appreciation and love of music and to see that blossom in others. Amy can't wait to meet your children and help them on their musical journey!
