I love teaching here at South Park Elementary. My interactive teaching style, combined with a very thorough and extensive district curriculum, will help to bring your students an enjoyable year in Music. I am excited to bring many opportunities to Engage, Inspire, and Empower your students to grow in their own expression through creating, performing and Understanding music. Highlights of the Curriculum include concerts for each grade, fundamentals in music, and many instrumental experiences including interactions with Recorder, Percussion, and Ukulele. As an Orff Schulwerk certified educator, I believe children learn the best by playing and exploring. Orff is a truly student-centered, student-driven learning methodology designed to unlock the creativity of each student.
