Music Together Vivo Teachers with Uncle Gerry and Denise at our 15th Anniversary Concert

Amanda, Diana and Cheryl with Uncle Gerry and Denise at
Music Together Vivo's 15th Anniversary concert in October 2016


Music Together Vivo teachers come from all different backgrounds, but all are experienced professionals that are united in a common passion: sharing the joy of music with children and families in Alexandria, Mount Vernon, Manassas and Burke/Springfield.  They create a fun, informal social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development. 

All of the Music Together Vivo teachers have successfully completed the Music Together® Teacher Training developed by the Center for Music and Young Children® in Princeton, New Jersey, and continue to participate in professional development workshops. In addition, Cheryl has participated in Music Together's Advanced Teacher Certification Program.

Cheryl Sabo earned her Master of Music degree from Arizona State University.  As a flutist, she toured with the nationally acclaimed chamber music and storytelling group Tales & Scales before settling down in Northern Virginia.  Cheryl loves teaching Music Together because it enables her to use her background in dance to explore movement and music with young children and their grown-ups.  A homeschooling mom and life-long learner, Cheryl enjoys exploring with her 2 boys.  She is a certified Kripalu yoga and YogaDance teacher and has been a licensed Music Together Center Director since 2001.

Amanda Campbell studied voice at Penn State University where she received her Bachelor's Degree in Music Education.  After teaching elementary general music in Virginia for a few years, Amanda moved west and worked for Opera Idaho.  Her time with Opera Idaho inspired Amanda to begin performing again - both as a member of Opera Idaho's Resident Company Chorus and as a soloist singing the National Anthem for various local sports teams.  Amanda returned to Virginia a few years ago and she continues to perform the National Anthem for minor league sports teams in the area.  She discovered Music Together when her daughter was 3 months old and they enrolled in their first Music Together class.  The experiences Amanda has had with her daughter in Music Together helped re-ignite her passion for music education.  She now is a registered Music Together teacher teaching several days a week.

She is passionate about helping students build a foundation in the arts, which will allow them to develop their own lifelong, creative path—and have fun along the way!
