I love music and I'm so excited to share my passion for music with the students and my team at Thunders Vista P-8! This will be my fourth year teaching music. I graduated from Colorado State University Fort Collins in 2014 with my bachelor’s in music education. I moved to Colorado my freshman year of college in 2010. I grew up in Southern California near the beach and spent much of my childhood surfing in the ocean. Within one year I fell in love with Colorado and now I can’t imagine leaving.
Growing up music was a huge part of my life. I began playing trumpet in fourth grade. Now I play trumpet and sing in several musical groups all over the state of Colorado with my closest friends!
I believe music is crucial part of our society. My goal is to work with our amazing team and enthusiastic families to help the students of Thunder Vista P-8 appreciate and enjoy the language of music. A main focus in music and my class will be having fun! Music is meant to be enjoyed by everyone. Will we be singing, dancing, playing instruments, studying composers, exploring music history, and composing music!
My hope is that the students of Thunder Vista P-8 come into music class with an open mind and open heart. They should be ready to laugh and learn!
