Our Teachers


All our Music Together® teachers are trained through the Center for Music and Young Children (CMYC). Backgrounds include training in music, music curriculum, parent education and early-childhood-music-development. Committed to excellence, Teresa regularly attends additional trainings offered by the national Music Together organization. Teresa, Mackenzie & Meg are passionate about music and the development of children. They create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.


  Silvia Boluarte

Ms. Silvia is originally from Peru.

Her passion for young children shines through her smile and enthusiasm for teaching and she's has dedicated her whole career to working with young children.

She has a Bachelor's degree in Early Education from Endicott College and is Montessori certified.

Silvia worked at the Harborlight Montessori school for 2 years and as a beloved Nanny for several years.

During this time she discovered another passion: music.

She started playing the ukulele and thought it would be great to combine her two great passions: working with young children and music.

She came across the Canta y Baila Conmigo® program, a Spanish immersion music class for early childhood created by Maddie Welch, a Massachusetts Music Together teacher, and can't wait to start teaching it. Join her for this high energy and education filled class!

Teresa Ines Coelho, Center Director

Teresa is celebrating her 13th anniversary teaching the Music Together program! 
In 2006, Teresa fell in love with the Music Together program for its philosophy, educational content and overall quality level. Recognizing the importance of music in her own child’s life, she realized that the North Shore was in need of a quality music & movement program lead by an accomplished professional musician/ educator and brought the Music Together classes to Salem, Marblehead, Beverly Farms and in the Fall'17 also to Rockport. Besides the parent-chil'd classes held 6 days per week, Teresa regularly provides family sing-alongs in libraries, birthday parties, pre-schools and private events.

Teresa has over 30 years experience as a Performing Arts Educator as well as a performer. She holds a Music Education Degree from UNI-RIO (University of Rio de Janeiro). Growing up in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Teresa started singing and making music in her teens. While in Rio, she has been professionally involved in choirs both as a singer and conductor, performed and contributed to the music direction of few awarded children’s theater plays, was a sought-after singer & flute player, performed with several music groups exploring elements of both the traditional Brazilian music and jazz styles. Teresa has released two CDs including her compositions and new arrangements of Brazilian music classics, and has been featured in several artists’ records as well. 

Now a days, Teresa is thrilled to be doing what she loves the most, which is working with kids, igniting their love for music in children and their families by suggesting ways to actively make music &  helping to create a musical environment both in her classes and the children’s homes.

An alumni of Berklee College of Music (Boston), where she studied arranging, songwriting and vocal improvisation, Teresa lives in the North Shore with her family. When she's not busy teaching her parent-child & preschool classes she can be found taking long walks at the beach, sometimes even in the winter bbrrrrr :)
