For Cecilia Myhres, music was always an integral part of her life from early childhood to performing in various competition ensembles (concert choirs, sextet, and madrigals). Over the past 18 years, she's performed in various local bands and has performed at many of the Coast's casinos with her husband, Michael as the acoustic duo, Hindsight.  She began teaching the Music Together® curriculum in the Spring of 2009 after training in NY with Dr. Lili Levinowitz (Music Professor at Rowan University and Co-author of the Music Together Program).  Cecilia brought the Music Together curriculum to the state of MS and started with 1 class of 6 students/families and currently teaches 4 class (with over 30 students/families). She's recently added the new Wunderkeys curriculum (introduction to piano for preschoolers) and she enjoys teaching voice lessons to individuals from age 6 to adult.
