Center Director Rowena Morgan first came across the Music Together program when she took her infant son to a class in New Jersey. Falling in love with the program immediately she took the training at the Music Together headquarters in Princeton, New Jersey in December 1997 before moving out to California with her family. She opened her own Music Together center in Pleasanton in 1998.
She has a Music Degree from Glasgow University in Scotland and trained at the Royal Academy of Music in Great Britain. Rowena plays flute, piano and recorder and has performed and taught both privately and in schools to students of all ages.
Every year Rowena travels back to the Music Together headquarters in Princeton for the Directors' conference to update skills, hear about the latest research in music and young children and also the new programs Music Together has to offer. Every semester Rowena and her teachers update their skills in local workshops covering not only musical elements but also childhood development, different learning styles, and classroom management.
Rowena has been awarded Certification Levels 1 and 2 from Music Together® for demonstrated achievement in musicianship, movement, parent education, and in teaching and articulating the Music Together program. She and was named "Community Treasure" at the Music Together annual conference in 2013.
