Music Along the Sound
Our Teachers

All of our teachers are passionate about music and the development of children.

We create a fun, informal, social setting, full of movement and laughter. Our classes become musical communities encouraging the musical growth of both children and adults through participation in songs and dances!  Music Classes for babies and toddlers in Westchester County!

Jean Young has taught Music Together® classes in Larchmont for the past 19 years and has directed Music Along the Sound for ten years.  Jean serves as music teacher at Christ’s Church Nursery School in Rye and was music specialist at Temple Emanu-El Nursery School in Manhattan for 28 years. She was musical director of the Chatsworth Avenue School Musical and she directed the children's choir at Community Unitarian Church.  She produced Adirondack Adventure, her first CD of original songs, in 2013.

Jean challenges the adults in her classes to stretch their music and dance abilities. (What, me sing a round? Dance a contradance?) She encourages them to interact musically with their children to see how much fun it is to grow musically together! She loves to see the class dissolve into laughter trying to pass the eggs around the circle! And she relishes their satisfaction when everyone succeeds in keeping the beat!  

Jean recently became a grandmother.  Her granddaughter Aria lives in Kodiak, Alaska, where she takes Music Together classes!
