Registered Music Together® Teacher
Enakshi and her family joined Music Together in 2012, in Louisville, KY, when her daughter Amaia was 18 months old (Family Music, Bells Collection, favorite song “Me, You, We”). For the next six years MT became a weekly ritual, and when Uncle Gerry from “Hello Song” fame came to Louisville for a family concert, Amaia, Enakshi, and husband Mike were in the front row jamming along! Singing and dancing with Amaia kept Enakshi grounded as she worked on her dissertation in K-8 mathematics education.
In 2017 Enakshi’s son Xabi began his MT journey (Babies class, Bongos Collection, favorite song “Open and Shut Them”). When the family moved to North Carolina, Jammin Baby was the first community group they sought out! Enakshi played violin and sang in chorus, danced and mimed in college - but without question, family music is her favorite jam.
Enakshi believes in the MT mission “to make the world a better place by making it more musical.” She brings the energy of the teachers she has sung with over the years - Maria and Maggie in KY, and Erica and Wes in NC - and she’s excited to sing with families in the Triangle. She believes that for children, seeing and hearing the grown ups in their lives sing, dance, and play with them is a joyful, precious gift.
