My name is Emily Asay and I am the Orchestra Teacher in HUSD for Gateway Pointe Elementary, Higley Traditional Academy, and Chaparral Elementary. I have my bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University of Arizona after transferring from Eastern Arizona College. I have been teaching elementary orchestra since 2016 and absolutely love it!
My passion for teaching orchestra started with being a musician. I started learning piano when I was six which helped prepare me to join orchestra in fifth grade. Orchestra was always my favorite class of the day which is why I now enjoy being that class for my students. I had wonderful teachers growing up and I am always working toward living up to them.
In my spare time, I enjoy being outside in nature. My husband and I have been married for over eight years. We have a daughter in heaven and will always love her. You can usually find me performing in different symphony orchestras or playing for weddings and special occasions. My husband and I enjoy spending time at the archery range, although we are definitely amateurs!
