Dave Garden, Registered Music Together® Instructor

Dave Garden received most of his formal training in the Music Department at Anna Maria College in Paxton, MA. A registered Music Together® Instructor, Dave also teaches piano, voice and guitar, both privately and at Mr. C's Music in Marlboro, MA.

As a vocal and instrumental instructor, Dave enjoys helping
children and adults become comfortable and fluent in the
fundamentals of musical language. He also gets a great deal of satisfaction from coaching less experienced musicians as they prepare for public performance.

David performs in a variety of choirs throughout Central and Western Massachusetts including work with WPI Festival Chorus, Anna Maria, UMass Amherst and Smith College choruses. In his spare time, he plays an eclectic mix of music in local clubs, private parties and weddings.

Dave's love of children, and his work with Kathleen Krieger, inspired him to pursue early childhood music education. In 2006 he became a Registered Music Together® Teacher by completing his training through the Center for Music and Young Children in Princeton, NJ. He continues his ongoing development as an early childhood educator through special workshops this summer (Teachers' Workshop Intensive) and this fall (Music Together Song Presentation Workshop).

Dave is the proud father of son and daughter and uncle of 4 nieces.

He and his wife reside in Shrewsbury, MA.
