Welcome to Music 2018-2019

Hello Archway Arete Families,

Welcome to the Archway Arete Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade music blog. I hope your summer was filled with adventures and rest.

This blog is the perfect place for you to follow your student’s musical studies as well as locate information regarding our two concert performances this year! These will be the evenings of November 14th and May 1st, so you can save the dates. Our concerts' location is posted on the right-hand side of the blog under my picture. Times and concert attire details will be posted the first couple weeks of school. These two nights are my favorite of the academic year because our students get to showcase their musical skills while performing beautiful song literature as a group. I am always proud of what our little ones can accomplish in just a few months!

I am jubilant to be returning for my third-year teaching at Archway Arete! Before coming to Arete I taught in the private sector. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Music Education emphasis in voice from Grand Canyon University in 2014. I am a classically trained soprano and specialize in a myriad of genres including choral and jazz. I am always delighted to hear my students listening to classical music outside the classroom and a couple of composers I love to listen to and study are Samuel Barber, Ernest Chausson and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. My teaching style is joyful and structured. I look forward to exploring Truth, Beauty and Goodness through music this year with our scholars.
