Music Education

  • Welch Directing Orchestra The Tilles Music Department has a proud history of producing life-long music lovers and outstanding musicians in several fields:  recorders, band, orchestra, vocal, and more recently guitar and ukulele.  We are the only elementary school with an active recorder consort, and orchestra consisting of 18 violins and 3 violas.  We are the proud home of a KORG keyboard lab, an acoustic Guitar Club, and new participants in Quaver's Marvelous World of Music online curriculum.  Next year we will debut the Rainbow Ukulele curriculum for grades 4, 5, and 6.

    My music room philosophy is that it should be a place for everyone to experience success, where all barriers of age, language, and narrow-mindedness are broken down, and replaced with an appreciation of diversity, an attitude of inclusiveness, and an aura of love in our lives as well as our music.
