Music Together of Fairfield County (MTFC) was founded in April 1994 by Jackie Jacobs. Jackie was the first to bring Music Together® to Connecticut when she moved here with her family from Brooklyn, where she taught classes for Music Together of Brooklyn. She discovered her passion for Music Together after taking her son Daniel to the program in Brooklyn Heights and observing the response he had to the classes. She also loved the fact that she learned about music and child development alongside his learning, and was excited about the research behind the program. As a former professional dancer and singer, with a BA in dance education , teaching seemed to be a natural fit and she eagerly started her own Music Together program in Fairfield when they moved into the suburbs ! Twenty two years later she is thrilled to still be in the classroom making music with children and parents, teaching Mixed Age, Rhythm Kids, and InSchool outreach classes in the city of Bridgeport. Her proudest accomplishment so far has been as a provider of Music Together classes to low income children across the city of Bridgeport for the last nine years. Over 10,000 children and families have been able to receive Music Together free of charge through her partnerships with ABCD INC, The Total Learning Initative, Bridge Together, Bridgeport Public Schools, and the Turn Around Arts Initiative. As an Early Childhood Music Educator, she conducts workshops for preschools and daycare providers. Jackie has also served on the Editorial Board for Music Together, and has been featured as a teacher trainer in over 30 videos for the program ! She is a national workshop leader for Music Together and a consultant/ advisor for their In-School programs. She holds Certification Level 2 for Teaching Mastery.
