Alexia Tate founded this center in 2017, after moving to the Hudson Valley from Queens, where she taught Music Together® for three years and founded Story Garden, a musical storytime for young children. As a Music Together parent, Alexia fell in love with the philosophy of the class and decided to do the teacher training, which led to an even stronger passion for the program. She has been awarded both Music Together Certification Level I and Certification Level II status, having demonstrated outstanding achievement in teaching, musicianship, program philosophy, and parent education. Alexia has also taught Musical Theater for children age 5-12 at Theater O in Ossining, and continues to offer Story Garden at The Field Library in Peekskill.

Before changing gears to become a mom, Alexia performed on New York's off-off-Broadway and nightclub stages for 15 years, and in 2009 she played Mrs. Howell in the the first national tour of GILLIGAN'S ISLAND: THE MUSICAL. Other favorite kid-friendly roles include the Queen in 13th St. Repertory's RUMPLE WHO? and the title role in Rising Sun's original cast of DOTTY DOT, which has become a children's theater sensation across the country. Alexia trained in NYC at Singers Forum with Phil Campanella and Stephanie Scott and at T. Schreiber Studio with Tracy Trevett, and received the 2007 Andy Anselmo Achievement Award for Emerging Artists.
