Certified Level I Music Together Teacher, B.A. Sociology, Hanover College. A native of Marion, Indiana, Stacey began singing at an early age with her father as her primary model and motivation. By singing along as her father played his harmonica she learned folk music and blues as well as a love for music making. In addition to playing her primary instrument (singing and dancing), Stacey plays the flute and guitar proficiently. Stacey is thrilled to pass on her love of music to families of Santa Fe. "The gift of music strengthens the heart and mind," she says. "I am blessed to be a part of this process in helping families build a musical foundation on which all learning can be built upon.";

Stacey has been involved with the arts and children since moving to Santa Fe in 2005. She is currently a facilitator for LifeSongs, a groundbreaking intergenerational arts program. 

In her spare time she is a tutor for the Literacy Volunteers of Santa Fe and she's about to embark on a new journey: Stacey will start Graduate School this Fall to earn her Masters in Social Work.

Registered Music Together Teacher. Nathan first began working with children as a creative facilitator and in-house composer at Austin Children's Theatre. Each semester he helped workshopped ideas with the kids, and then collaboratively wrote an original musical, produced and performed for the public. This experience gave Nathan an appreciation of how effective and fun learning can be when approached as a collaboration between children and adult facilitators.
He says, "I love teaching Music Together through FAM JAM! because the program provides a rich, experiential learning environment for children and for adults. This kind of non-formal learning environment works best for early learning in music but it really works best for all learning and for all ages. Music Together combines a research-based curriculum with the joy and freedom of spontaneous expression. Learning is embedded within a fun experience so we learn without even realizing we are learning."

Nathan also works as a facilitator for LifeSongs, a groundbreaking intergenerational arts program as well as with the Santa Fe Public Schools in their after school program.

During the summers, Nathan is a salmon fisherman in Alaska!
