Our Teachers

Center Director Lisa Hearns is passionate about music development in children.  She believes that Music Together® is more than just a "mommy and me" class.  Lisa and her teachers create a fun, informal, social setting that spurs engagement and supports each child's musical development.  We hope you'll come sample a class with us, and see for yourself why families love our online classes!

Center Director/Teacher 

Lisa Hearns has been teaching music for twenty years, and is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. The daughter of two music teachers, Lisa began singing and playing music at an early age. Lisa had the support and guidance of her mother who played professionally and taught piano for many years, and her father who taught singing at Boston University and later Lesley College. Her training continued as a young woman, studying trumpet, piano, guitar and voice privately. Lisa began playing professionally first in the New York tri-state area in the late 80's, then received her Bachelor of Music degree from Berklee. While working toward her degree in Boston, Lisa began performing jazz, and teaching music privately. She continues to work as a jazz vocalist, and has released two professional recordings. Her latest recording has received airplay across the country on jazz radio, and was produced by 7 time Grammy award winning producer Elliot Scheiner. 

Before opening Tiny Voices Little Songs (previously Tiny Voices Music Together), Lisa apprenticed with Lili Levinowitz, PhD, Director of Research, Music Together, LLC and Coauthor of Music Together. Lisa is excited about offering the Music Together program to families in the Monmouth and Middlesex counties, and is dedicated to sharing the gift of music with her students. In September 2013 Lisa received her Certification Level I for teaching mastery of Music Together, and she received her Certification Level II, Music Together's highest level of advanced certification in August, 2016.

Beth Kasper has been performing since the age of 12 and consistently works in theater in Middlesex and Union counties.  She was first introduced to Music Together® in California when she was searching for a music class for her daughter, and immediately fell in love with the program.  After moving back to New Jersey she decided that teaching Music Together was a perfect fit for her and her family.  She taught in Scotch Plains for three years and then took a break to teach Preschool Music at a local school.  Beth now teaches preschool music AND Music Together and loves how both make her a better teacher! She has three children who are all graduates of Music Together and who all still love singing and performing.

Rhonda has been involved in music her whole life and was excited to find a program that allowed her to marry two great loves: working with children in early childhood and music. She is formally trained in voice and has participated in many dramatic productions. She has led various children’s programs and has worked in early childhood education as a preschool teacher. In 2006, Rhonda was awarded Music Together Certification Level I for outstanding achievement in teaching, musicianship, program philosophy and parent education. In 2005, she received Certification I from the Early Childhood Music and Movement Association, an international organization of professional music educators. She is also a member of the Children's Music Network and has studied Dalcroze Eurythmics at the Longy School of Music. 

“Finding this program was kind of like finding home: it spoke to the child within, and I immediately felt thrilled to have the opportunity to share music in this way with our community.” - Rhonda Matson

Dave has wanted to be a musician and entertainer since age 10, when he first picked up a tennis racket the wrong way to strum along with Def Leppard videos in the early days of MTV. As an amateur musician, Dave fooled around with various marching bands, rock groups and even day jobs before “going pro” as a registered Music Together teacher in 2002. He has been known to play guitar, banjo, bass, tuba, mandolin, harmonica, drums and kazoo, though not all at the same time. Nowadays, in addition to teaching Music Together, Dave sings and plays lead guitar for The Fuzzy Lemons, the metro area’s hottest family-friendly rock band. He lives in Hoboken with his wife and son and a polydactyl cat named Morpheus. We're so excited to welcome Dave to our VIRTUAL ROSTER of teachers this Fall, to teach Rhythm Kids Online!
