2017-2018 Concert Information

Please look on your young musician's school to see specific details about concerts for this year.  Usually students get "extra credit" for decorating their stand, instrument, or for wearing "festive" wear.  More information will be out ASAP.

About Mrs. Burke

I have taught music for 25 years in Wisconsin, Australia and Minnesota. I currently am the 5th grade band director at Armstrong, Grey Cloud, Crestview and Nuevas Fronteras Spanish Immersion Schools. I have taught at 9 of the different elementary schools in the district.  Growing up in Hudson, my influences to be an elementary band teacher came from my junior high band director Carl Meincke, my High School Band teacher Kristin Tjornehoj and my mom who was an elementary school teacher. 

I have my Bachelors Degree in both Vocal and Instrumental Music Education from UW-River Falls, and my Masters Degree in Education from St. Mary’s. I live in Spring Valley, WI with my husband Paul and our son Tommy.  Our son Tommy is in 9th grade and is an Eagle Scout in Troop 145 from Spring Valley, WI.  He plays the clarinet with the Spring Valley High School Band, so I totally understand the time commitments to things other than band.
