All Music Together of Church Hill teachers have successfully completed the live Music Together Teacher Training, which is built on research in early childhood and music development. We keep our skills fresh through workshops every semester and advanced trainings offered by Music Together Worldwide. Music Together of Church Hill celebrates diversity and welcomes families from all backgrounds to join our community of RVA music-makers!
Hannah Buckley is a Virginian songwriter, musician, and field recordist, as well as the Center Director of Music Together of Church Hill. Hannah holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from The College of William & Mary and a Master of Arts degree in Popular Music & Culture from the University of Western Ontario. Hannah has performed extensively throughout Virginia and North Carolina at a diversity of venues, private events, and festivals. Her repertoire is as considerable as it is unique and covers genres ranging from traditional jazz to folk, pop, rock, and ambient. Hannah has written and recorded three albums, entitled Stillness (2015), Provinces (2017), and To: Virginia (2019). Hannah is also a passionate Ashtanga yogi and instructor (200RYT) and a tea afficionado! She brings her love of music, movement, and wellness to the ethos of Music Together of Church Hill! With a desire to bring high-quality, community-building music and movement classes to Richmond, Hannah founded Music Together of Church Hill in 2019. Hannah appreciates the Music Together philosophy that "all children are born musical" and "can achieve basic musical competance" through an environment that is "playful, musically rich, and developmentally appropriate." She believes that playfulness is as valuable for adults as it is for children, and she encourages parents to enjoy being silly while making music with their little ones. Her teaching style is rooted in openness, empathy, and a willingness to embrace each family as simultaneously unique and integral to the Music Together of Church Hill community. Hannah invites your family to join the exciting community of RVA music-makers at Music Together of Church Hill!
