BES Music Class

Welcome to Music at Bright Elementary!

Music class at Bright Elementary is all about connecting each student with something unique in the world of music, as well as connecting them with one another. Through singing, playing instruments, and moving, students will learn basic concepts of music theory, historical context, and vocal and instrumental performance. They will learn teamwork, confidence, independence, and responsibility; they will learn to compose, to improvise, to interpret, to create, to move, and to reflect. Because every child is coming from a different background and possesses a unique set of skills, all I can ask is that my students try their absolute best and step out of their comfort zone when the opportunity presents itself.

"Music doesn’t lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music."

- Jimi Hendrix

About the teacher...

My name is Maria Keck and I am brand new to Bright Elementary this year. I grew up in West Harrison, Indiana, and recently graduated from Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio, where I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Music Education. I am licensed in both Ohio and Indiana to teach Pk-12 music. I am absolutely thrilled to be given the opportunity to work with the incredibly talented and devoted staff here at BES, and even more excited to work with such amazing students! I am fully confident that this year is going to be one filled with many triumphs and lots of beautiful music!
