Music Comes Together for Kate Battenfeld

September 14, 2017

Kate Battenfeld’s life is surrounded by all things musical. She is a singer-songwriter, a music educator, and the business owner of Joyful Jumping Music Together® in Carlsbad, Vista and Oceanside. Her business is part of Music Together, LLC, an award-winning, international music and movement program for young children and their parents/caregivers. Kate began teaching Music Together in 1999 in the Boston area, and continued her business when she moved to Carlsbad 11 years ago with her husband Ian, and their two children, Max and Gemma, now ages 19 and 16. 

“I love helping families grow and learn through music,” she says. “I am constantly amazed by children’s innate musical abilities, and I am honored that I get to encourage and nurture a never-ending love of music.” 

In addition to running her Music Together business, Kate is the TK - 5th grade music educator for Buena Vista Elementary School in Carlsbad. And on weekends and evenings, you can often find her performing locally as part of The BadCarls Band, an acoustic/alternative band.
