Barbi Beyer is a university-trained vocalist enjoying life in RI as a singer and songwriter, Music Together teacher, and mother to two daughters. If you ask one of her young students, though, she is far more than that.This Rhode Island icon has reached celebrity status with the children of South County. A veritable Pied Piper, Barbi is a gifted early childhood educator and entertainer committed to fostering a love for music in a child’s early years. The parents in her classes all agree that learning is not solely focused on the younger students in Barbi’s classroom. The adults leave a Sing With B Music class with a few more tools in their parenting toolbox, a renewed confidence in their musical ability, and the ability to encourage musical learning in their children.
For Barbi, this mission began at home, where her deep love for music and children unfolded organically while raising her own children. Her wish to continue to combine these two passions led her to Princeton, New Jersey in 1996. There, Barbi trained at the Center for Music and Young Children and became a registered Music Together teacher. She later went on to record two children’s lullaby cd’s with her sister; I See The Moon and I See The Moon Too.
Today, Barbi is the is the director of Sing With B Music, offering Music Together classes and performing both public and private musical programs. Her services are highly sought for birthday parties, school assemblies, and recreational concerts. She feels Music Together is an exceptional program and is thrilled to continue to offer classes in North Kingstown, Rhode Island.
