Dover-Eyota Choir ♫ 2020-2021


Dear Choir Students and Families,

One of the beauties of music is that the learning is never-ending; not only will I strive for musical growth among my students, but I know they will also be the biggest part of my own growth and continuous discovery of what music has to offer.  

The goals of the DEHS choir program are:

  • To instill an appreciation for music in every student
  • To develop healthy vocal habits for lifelong singers
  • To develop self-confidence in a collaborative community
  • To provide new musical experiences
  • To develop skills to analyze music and interpret music 

In my experiences, being a part of a choir means being a part of another family. Choir class will be a safe atmosphere that is welcoming to all students. Each student will learn to respect one another, try new things and experience the joy of creating something amazing as a group.

About Me
This is my first year teaching vocal music at Dover-Eyota High School/Middle School. I am thrilled to be here! 

    I grew up in Wisconsin and earned my Bachelor's degree from UW-La Crosse. My first year teaching was a long term sub position in DeForest, WI teaching k-5 music. After this position, I spent the next five years at Slinger Middle School in Slinger, WI, teaching choir and general music. Students in choir took trips to participate in festivals at UW-Milwaukee as well as a yearly Honors Choir Festival in Grafton, WI. During my time at Slinger I also coached our forensics team, public speaking, and assisted with cross country. Outside of teaching, I sang in the Madison Symphony Chorus for one year and the Milwaukee Symphony Chorus for three years. 
    I spent the last two years living in Colorado as a full time graduate student at the University of Colorado Boulder. While in Colorado, I was the co-conductor of the University Men's Choir and had the opportunity to mentor undergraduates while working with the Boulder Children's Choir. In the community I was fortunate enough to be the assistant director of a Women's Chamber Choir, ASTER, and was a regular substitute director for a local church choir. I spent one week during my first summer of school back in Wisconsin as a conducting fellow for the Madison Choral Project, a professional choir directed by Dr. Albert Pinsonneault. 
    I am very excited to be here in Minnesota! Outside of school, I will also be working as the Artistic Director for Bella Voce with the Sing Out Loud! organization. I can't wait to make great music with new students!
