Welcome to the new school year, I have been at Chaparral since it opened. After graduating from Arizona School of Music I was a music therapist for well over a decade and then stayed home with my children for many years. During that time I did part time work teaching music at private schools and organizaions, as well as volunteering.
We utilize Game Plan curriculum which incorporates and embraces the philosophies of Orff and Kodaly. Orff combines singing, movement and the playing of instruments to help students of varying ablilities to experience creative success. Game Plan presents the lessons in a concise format that is practical and fun. With continuing education and training I am often adding new things to keep classroom learning fresh and alive.
In my free time I sing with an Irish choir called Celtica, bike the canals, hike and spend time with my husband of 32 years and two adult children.
