John Schaaf

Assistant Teacher

Music is one of those things that's universal and helps us grow while we enjoy it.


John enjoys working with school-age children. He first joined PIC as a summer camp teacher and stayed on in our After School Center.

John first became interested in working with children while volunteering at an infant communication lab in college where he studied how young children (6 and 12 months old ) could recognize how speech is used before they themselves start to make words. 

Originally from Havertown, John loves to play and teach guitar and looks forward to sharing his talents at PIC.
