Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Betsy Denton

I have been teaching elementary music in the West Ada School District since 2007 and at Peregrine Elementary since 2008.  I moved to the Treasure Valley after graduating from the University of Idaho with a Bachelors of Science degree in vocal and instrumental music education for Kindergarten through 12th grade.  I started playing the piano when I was in the fourth grade and later added the saxophone and flute to my instrumental studies as well as joined choirs throughout my education.  I have been a part of saxophone quartets, symphonic bands, jazz bands, and marching bands in addition to performing solo pieces at the University of Idaho.

I love sharing the joy of music with students while seeing them grow as musicians and as people.
