My name is Libby Stiles and I love working with kids!! I have a Bachelor's Degree in Speech-Language-Hearing from the University of Kansas (Go Jayhawks!!) and a Masters Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Nebraska-Omaha. I worked for Millard Public Schools for 8 years in their Early Childhood Birth-3 Program. I "retired" when I started having my own kids and I have been lucky enough to be a full time at home mom for the past 13 years. All of my kids took Baby Maestro and we loved it!! In fact, my oldest, Mia, was in Deborah's very first class! I have three kids total--Mia and twins Hailey & Cooper. I have been married to my husband David since June 2001. I started teaching Baby Maestro in the fall of 2012. It is such a blast and I love all of the great kids and families that I have met!! I may sing off key every now and then, but I always make sure we have a ton of fun!!
My name is Libby Collins. After attending one fall session with my then one year old, I fell in love with it to the point where I knew I had to teach! I have been fortunate enough to teach since January 2015.
Creative expression and inciting happiness in others are my passions. I sang in every high school choir that existed at my school and performed in every musical. I moved from there to dancing and modeling. Then later I taught toddlers and school aged children in martial arts for five years. Now I am an assistant Latin Dance instructor with my significant other.
The Baby Maestro studio is my new playground as I sing, dance, act silly, crack jokes, and most importantly engage every child at every age building social skills, language, motor skills, self expression, helping skills, self-awareness, confidence, and simply creating FUN!! Baby Maestro is a wonderful place for your child and you!
MEET OUR AMAZING TEACHERS
One of the many things that makes Baby Maestro so amazing is our teachers. Combined we have over 26 years of teaching experience. Please read about our fabulous teachers below!
My name is Becky Scherbring and I come from a long line of musicians and artists. Everyone from my grandparents, husband and sister to my son are involved – and in love - with music! I played the cello through college and was a member of several local orchestras. I even got to perform in New York’s Carnegie Hall! I've played cello for several local bands, including Six Speed Universe, Lullaby For The Working Class (one of the early Saddle Creek Records projects - I told you I was cool!) and Million Little Voices. I have a Masters of Science in Elementary Ed with a specialization in Early Childhood. I taught elementary school for 12 years - preschool, kindergarten and second grade. I now work for the Nebraska State Education Association full-time, and the only people in my office are adults. I get my "littles" fix when I get to boogie with my Baby Maestro kids! I was introduced to the program in January of 2009 when our son was 18 months old, and my family was instantly hooked! I began teaching that same Spring. I feel very fortunate to have found such an educational, interactive, FUN music program! I hope to have the opportunity to teach classes at Baby Maestro for a very long time!
My name is Deborah Hollenbeck and I am probably the LEAST qualified of all of the teachers here at Baby Maestro. But what I lack in formal education I make up for with passion and energy. Teaching music classes is the best job that I've ever had! I strive to give my parents and kids upbeat classes, that have a nice mix of structured and spontaneous songs. My goal is to keep my classes moving so kids stay focused, but also to ensure that every child is included and has a great time!!
My friends and family will tell you that I am singing all of the time- maybe not in tune or in the right key, but loudly and with a smile!
