Catherine Rubin has been singing professionally for over 25 years. She studied classical and jazz voice at Ithaca College in NY. Upon graduation she began a career as a singer/songwriter of adult contemporary music and in the mid-nineties, released her first album. Since then, Catherine has put out 4 more original albums and has had several songs featured in independent films. She has studied vocal improvisation with Jazz legend Bobby McFerrin and other members of McFerrin's band "Voicestra." Her interest in the healing properties of music led her to study Music Therapy at Montclair State University. She started teaching the early childhood music program "Music Together®" after taking her son, Max to the classes and falling in love with the program. Catherine is celebrating her 16th year of teaching Music Together.
