WELCOME TO MUSIC!

l

In the Arkansas Music/Fine Arts standards, elementary music learning is divided into four categories: Performing, Responding, Creating, and Reflecting. Within these four categories are a world of learning! London Elementary students will learn about the instrument families, how to sing, how to read music at a beginner level, how to appreciate the difference in musical taste, and more! They will also learn music history, musical genres, and the differences in tempos, dynamics, articulations, etc. 2nd and 4th graders put on a program every year and learn important teamwork and performance skills. Students who finish the music program at London will be full of knowledge and ready to be a part of any ensemble in the future!

Hello!  My name is Rachael Cantu.  I hold Bachelor of Arts degrees in Spanish and Instrumental Music and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Arkansas Tech University.  I taught 3rd grade, 1st grade, and ESL before teaching elementary music.  I live in Russellville with my wonderful husband and three terrific children.

I believe that music enriches all of our lives and is especially important for the intellectual and emotional development of our children.  I am excited to have the opportunity to share the gift of music with your child!
