• Hello!  I am so excited to be part of the family here at North Bay Elementary.  My goal as the music teacher is to provide students with a well-rounded education in the musical arts using fun and engaging activities. We'll learn about music theory, musical genres, famous composers, musical instruments, vocal technique, performance practices, concert etiquette, and more.

    Don't forget to ask for the Music Google Class Code, so that you can access fun activities there.
