Welcome to the 5th Grade Music and Band page! This is my fourth year teaching and fourth year at Pioneer. My time is split between four schools this year where I teach a variety of musical subjects and grade levels. The students and staff at this school are so inspiring and I love being a Puma!
This year will be very different, but I am confident that we can do it! We are in this together!
As for me, I have been in love with music for as long as I can remember. From the time I was little, I have been obsessed with movie music and that is what ultimately inspired me to become a musician! My elementary music and band teachers were the ones to inspire me to become a teacher and I'm never looking back. I play just about every traditional instrument out there. I love playing and practicing all instruments like the flute, clarinet, trumpet, trombone, baritone, percussion, piano, guitar, etc... but my true loves are the oboe and english horn!
Outside of school, I love to kickbox, cook and bake, be outside, watch/play sports, and eat indian food! That's me in a nutshell.
I'm so excited to get to know you this year. It will be a fun year of making music together!
