We are Musicians!
Meet Mrs. Gauthier
Welcome to Music! I firmly believe that music is a universal language that anyone can learn to speak, read, write, and perform. My goal is for students to develop the skills to read, write, analyze and perform music from a variety of genres and styles. My hope is to help them create lifelong memories and a deeper appreciation for music.
Each month, students will learn about a new composer and experience some of their musical compositions. They will also work on existing music skills and continue to learn new skills to build a solid musical foundation.
In the month of September students learned about the 20th century composer, Fisher Tull, who was a native Texan (from Waco) and spent nearly 20 years as the Music Department Chair at Sam Houston State University. I thought it was important for students to learn that composers didn’t just live 300 years ago in a far away place. He was local, modern, influential and well respected. You may have heard stories about Tripod the dog and the inspiration for one of Tull’s compositions. Each grade level is off to a great start in music and I’m looking forward to see how much more they learn this year!

We had great feedback from last year's Coffee with the Counselor sessions and are looking forward to providing these again!
