Welcome! Freedom Elementary students experience a wide variety of activities throughout the year. These activities are based on the Chandler Unified School district music curriculum, which is derived from the Arizona and National Standards for music education. The Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze methods are employed by reading and writing music, singing, playing instruments, listening and evaluating, moving and dancing, composing, team work and FUN!
My Education and Professional Background
Bachelor of Science from the University of Southern Maine and Master's of Music from Arizona State University Degrees: Master of Music from Arizona State University and a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from University of Southern Maine. I have been a music educator for 35 years at the elementary, junior high, and college levels.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe all children can learn. Music offers a child a way to learn through expression and creativity. Music education should be an extension of core subject areas as well as a means of teaching self-discipline and self-esteem. It is my mission to provide a balanced, sequential and comprehensive music education to all students. I strive to help my students become life-long learners who appreciate all types of music with an open mind.
