Mrs. Glenna Newby

I am the general music teacher and choir director here at Eagle Elementary School of the Arts.  This is my 11th year at Eagle Elementary, and I love working with the students, parents and staff of this community!  I truly have the best job, and care about the work we do for students.

As we continue to transition to a traditional boundary school, we continue to incorporate the an "Arts Lens" in student instruction.  Where we already have a fun and engaging general music curriculum, this year every student gets to participate in an additional "Exploratory" experience.  For two months of the year, each grade level will spend Tuesdays attending a special "Block" class that engages Music; Choir/instrumental exploration, Art; Movement and Art exploration, and Library: Reader's Theater.  All are intended to expand student knowledge and experience through the Arts Lens.

In General Music we will be engaging with a variety of musical instruments through our curricular studies.  The use of pitched and unpitched instruments will be used daily.  I will do my best to share out virtual practice and sneak peek experiences we are having in the music class!  

I look forward to meeting all the new students this year.  Feel free to contact me any time with questions at
