Music Mind Games Teacher Trainers



 Michiko Yurko, Maryland 

Creator, Author, Master Trainer, and Conference Presenter




Each of our teacher trainers is an accomplished musician, holds a university college degree, and is an expert in his or her field of music education. They have taken multiple Unit 1 & 2 workshops with Michiko and personally assisted her at short workshops and Unit 1 & 2 workshops and successfully completed a week-long Unit 1 and/or Unit 2 teacher trainer retreat. They have spent years teaching Music Mind Games with their own students, assisted each other, been observed, and grown in their knowledge of current pedagogical trends. Each one maintains regular contact with Michiko and stays up to date with game innovations and pedagogical developments in Music Mind Games.
