Music At Aikin meets twice each week. We take a blend approach to music, using the standards set by the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills and mixing them with combined elements of the Orff-Schulwerk and Kodaly methods of teaching music. Students have plenty of opportunities to sing, dance and play games in the classroom. We also work toward performance goals at many of our community night events, including Multi-Cultural Night, Craft Night, and Spring Open House.
Music has always been my essential part of my life. Through my life I have studied dance, piano, saxophone and voice. After graduating from Oklahoma State University, I began teaching in Killeen. I am glad to be in Dallas with the family and friends while sharing my love for music with the students at Aikin. In my free time I enjoy paint by numbers and hiking.
