ABOUT THE TEACHER: I have been teaching in Struthers Schools since the 2006/07 school year. I teach choir, show choir, and musical genres at the high school and ½ of the eigth grade choir and music appreciation at the middle school, as well. I love music and have played the piano and sang since I was a very small child.
ABOUT THE CLASS: Each school year the choir classes that I teach will learn two different shows to perform for their parents. There will be a Holiday Show in December and a Spring Show in May. The Show Choir performs many other performances than just these two shows, but they also learn two groups of music. Also, the Show Choir class is by audition only. 8th grade and high school students may audition in March for admittance into the group if the choose. And finally, the musical genres class is available for all high school students. This class learns about music from many different styles including jazz and rock and roll. At the end of the school year, this class goes on a field trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
