Carrie Brown

I am so delighted to be teaching your child music this year! My main instrument is the flute, but I also play piano, ukulele, and sing. I received my undergraduate degree in music from the University of North Texas followed by a master's degree in music from Texas Christian University. This will be my 3rd year of teaching.

My approach to teaching music is closely aligned with the teaching practices of Carl Orff and Gunild Keetman. For more information on the Orff Approach to teaching music, check out this website: aosa.com/whatisorffschulwerk

Each of our six houses at CRE will present a music program during the year and you will get the opportunity to see your learner perform with his/her housemates. Please see the "House Programs" tab for more information. 

4th graders will need to purchase a Recorder. Information on how and where to purchase a Recorder will be in future newsletters as well as on the "Recorder" tab.

Please contact me by email if you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help out in the music room.

-Mrs. Brown
