photo WILLIAM BERG
"Mr. Bill" has been teaching Music Together classes since the summer of 2002, and has been fortunate to take his skills and joy of music-making to various parts of the country, teaching in and around New York City, Los Angeles, and Las Vagas. The song of a music teacher, performer and jazz lover, Bill has long enjoyeda wide variety of musical influences. He is an actor, performer and improviser who loves to sing and dance any time he gets the chance. Deeply inspired by the freedom, spontaneity, and sense of wonder within children of all ages, Bill works (and plays) to keep that childlike spirit alive in himself and in his classes. His classes are high-energy celebrations of music and movement where everyone's bound to leave with a smile on their faces and a little more spring in their step.
     
photo ALEXIS HALL

Alexis grew up in the rural, farm community of Lockney, Texas. Her mother would tell you she sang long before talking. While earning a BM in Vocal Performance, she was asked to attend a Music Together teacher training in Austin, Texas in 2007 (Heartsong Music). One round of “Hello, Everybody” and she was hooked. Alexis fell in love with the wonderful message Music Together brings to families: everyone is musical, and therefore music is for everyone! Alexis became a registered Music Together facilitator that weekend and brought Music Together to Wayland Baptist University’s Academy of Fine Arts. She taught there for three years and then earned her Certification I in 2010. In 2011, she completed her BM from Wayland Baptist University and continued to teach Music Together until her move to NYC in 2015. Prior to relocating to the city, Alexis was the Children’s Minister at First United Methodist Church in Plainview, Texas. Her desire is for everyone to have the same musical experience she had while growing up – dancing and singing with her parents in the living room to whatever song came on the radio, “jamming” in the car, and making up silly songs in the bath tub. Music is a joy, and Alexis is so excited to share the joy of music with the families in NYC!

     
photo BRIDGET JOHNSTON

Bridget was born and raised in Southern California in a family that played with music everyday. Her father Vic, a playwright and composer, would make up songs about the moon, the rain, fishing or anything that would reflect the days activities. Her Mom, Lita, would create harmonies, and singing together became the family nighttime ritual. Her love of music and performing grew into a career in musical theatre that has taken her all over the Country and the World with The American Music Company, Holland America Cruises, various regional theatre productions, and the First National Tour of Miss Saigon. After performing for fifteen years, Bridget settled in New York with her husband, Owen, where they have raised their two children Jordan and Noah who are all professional actors on Broadway, television and film. Their boys have been seen or heard in dozens of national commercials, voice-overs for several series on Nickelodeon and the Disney channel, feature films for Disney/Pixar and 20th Century Fox/Blue Sky.
