Hi! My name is Jill Kocher and I am Nationally Certified by the Music Teachers National Association, and hold masters and bachelors degrees in teaching music and performing. For over 15 years, I have been teaching music and piano for ages four through adult. For the youngest music students, I am pleased to be offering MUSIC FOR YOUNG CHILDREN™ (MYC) classes beginning this September 2012 in Encinitas. MYC is a great way for young students to build a solid musical foundation that can later be transferred to any instrument.
