Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am thrilled to provide an enriching music class for the students at Northside Elementary. I grew up in the Cedartown area and have a Bachelor of Music degree from Berry College. In my class, students will have the opportunity to learn and grow in music through many activities and lessons including, exploring the structure of music, singing songs of different genres, and learning to perform with instruments.
My educational philosophy is based on the thoughts of Dewey who believed students learn best through experience. In my classroom, I make sure students experience music through movement, listening, performing, and notation. I believe when they are given opportunities to explore music, they are more adept to understand and appreciate music as a study and an art form.
