Devonne Cooper

Prior to joining the CES faculty in 2000, I taught music in Floyd County and Rome City.  My husband, Dr. O.P. Cooper and I have 4 children, and each of them graduated from Carrollton High School.  Carrollton City Schools is a great place to be!

After school, from 2:15 until 3:30,  I teach small groups of students violin through a modified Suzuki program.  Opportunities exist to perform in our community, including local nursing homes and civic meetings.

Currently, music classes have a focus on Broadway musicals.  Tracey Morris, another CES Music teacher, and I, work extensively for ALL students to gain musical skills.  Here at the elementary level, many young musicians await opportunities to join a chorus, performing group, band, jazz ensemble, or even the Show Choir.  All of these opportunities exist right here in Carrollton City Schools.

We continue to have STEAM MUSIC WEDNESDAYS!  Small groups come to music on Wednesdays throughout the school year to experience unique spins on music through creativity, imagination, and supposition.  Stations are set up for group interaction and exploration.  Ask your child about our kick off with Makey Makey, Osmo Coding Jam, and Tuning Fork Amazing Vibrations.

Musical skills are first honed right here at CES!  From rhythmic dictation, mini-performances, large group community Sing Alongs in the winter season, introductions to  piano and ukulele skills, and the catchy interplay of  drum circles, something exciting can be found within the music rooms.  

With great anticipation, I treasure the unexpected thrills of each new music class!
