MEET OUR MUSIC TEACHER

My name is Sarah Curlin and I have the honor of being Sequoyah’s music teacher. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Music Education from Arkansas Tech University with an emphasis in Vocal Music. My passion and my goal is to give my students a love for music and to provide them with a strong foundation in the elements of music. I most enjoy getting to know my students and see them grow in their musical abilities and in their appreciation of music. Whether my students are performing, creating, or exploring time periods in music, I love to get to see them experience the joy that music can bring. Another aspect of teaching that I enjoy is getting to see my students work together and bond as a “Music Family” to tell the story of a show and to watch them create fond memories from performing.
