Welcome to Music at Cimarron!
Welcome to music at Cimarron Elementary! I am so excited to join the staff and specials team in our community. With the difficulties of the last year and a half, it is more important than ever that our students are able to have quality learning experiences where they can learn and create music with each other.
My name is Angela Schmitt, and I am a Michigan native turned Coloradan 2 years ago. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Grand Valley State University in Michigan, where I taught K-12 elementary music and secondary band. I completed my Masters Degree in piano performance and pedagogy from CU Boulder in May, where I taught group piano classes and accompanied choirs. I am a pianist and percussionist, and feel strongly that all children deserve high quality music education!
Additionally, I recently moved into the community and live just down the street! My boyfriend, Josh, our dog, Ernie, and cat, Mika love being in this area. You will likely catch us biking or walking outside, so please stop me to say hello!
What music looks like at our school
Music is an inclusive subject. So much is based on individual expression, creativity, teamwork, and curiosity that all student cultures, interests and personalities are valued and important. Our class periods will start with students being greeted at the door, an introductory activity or review activity, group exploration, individual exploration, and a final performance, share-out, and/or room to explore the topic further. We are hoping to be able to have live performances with our students this year, so stay tuned for more information.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. I care deeply that all students feel seen and comfortable in the music classroom. If there is anything else you feel I should know about your student, please contact me. My lines of communication are always open and music donations are always welcome. See you soon!
