• Prepare to take a journey full of musical adventure! 

    As your music teacher, it is my job to give you the best musical experience you can possibly have!  I will challenge you, I will make you use your imaginations, I will make you think, I will make you listen, I will introduce you to musical things you never knew were possible, you will sing, you will dance, you will play musical instruments, we will perform, we will work hard, and we will have fun, and all of this, with a smile on all of our faces!  My goal for music class is to teach you to love, appreciate, and experience music for all that it is.  I will use my knowledge, passion, and skills to teach you all I know about music.  This will be like no other journey you have been on before!  Sit back, have fun, and enjoy your musical journey here at Turlington Elementary School!

    Why do WE teach music?
    Not because we expect you to major in music.
    Not because we expect you to play or sing all your life.
    Not so you can relax.
    Not so you can have fun.

    So you will be Human.
    So you will recognize beauty.
    So you will be sensitive.
    So you will be closer to an infinite beyond this world.
    So you will have something to cling to.
    So you will have more love, more compassion, more gentleness, more good---- in short, MORE LIFE!

    That is why we teach Music!
