What You Do Matters!
Welcome to Murphy Choir!
Though the 2020-2021 school year will look differently than any previous year, we are so excited to meet our students and develop their music education! Please scroll to the bottom of this page to get to know Ms. Altman and Ms. Wilson, and visit our teacher pages on the MMS website (each linked in our biographies). If you are new to Murphy, welcome!!, it is an awesome place. Shout-out to our returning students and families - thanks for trusting your Choir Mamas to expand your choir life through new experiences this year!
In Beginning Choir (periods 1, 6, 7) and Men's Choir (period 2), the students are divided between two rosters, but will have both Choir Mamas in their classes each day. In A Cappella Women and Concert Women (periods 3 and 5), Ms. Altman will be the primary director. In Select Women (period 5), Ms. Wilson will be the primary director. Periods 2, 3, and 5 are all Advanced Choirs.
The first day of school will be a mixture of school-wide information from the MMS principals and counselors, as well as meeting your daily schedule of teachers! Everything will be done via Google Meet, and you'll receive information on how to join each of your classes prior to Wednesday, August 12.
If you have not picked up your PISD Chromebook, school supplies, or math workbook, be sure to contact the MMS front office so that you have all of your necessary materials to get the year started: (469) 752-7000.
We wish we could welcome you into the Murphy Choir room with big smiles and a first day of singing (since that's what we do!), but we'll have to welcome you into the room virtually this year! Hold on tight, it's going to be quite the wild ride!

Murphy Choir Mamas
Ms. Melanie Altman
Aside from teaching choir and laughing with her students every day, Ms. Altman sings soprano two with the Plano Civic Chorus and enjoys performing as a chorister multiple times throughout the year. Ms. Altman loves to spend time outside of school cheering on her favorite football teams with her family, her two fluffy cats, and her friends. Her favorite parts of her job as an MMS Choir director are getting to know her students, being a goofy Choir Mama, and stretching before singing! :)
Ms. Courtney Wilson
Outside of MMS, Ms. Wilson enjoys playing with her adorable schnauzer, Duke! She is also involved as a member of the Praise Team at One Community Church in Plano! Ms. Wilson is so looking forward to getting to know all of the wonderful choir students and developing relationships that will last a lifetime! Go Mavericks!
