Welcome to Music at Marvista!
A little about your teacher:
This is my 8th year teaching general music and my 3rd year teaching in the state of Washington! I graduated with a Bachelors of Music Education from Illinois State University in 2010. Upon graduation, I taught elementary general music in Danville, Illinois for 5 years.
In the summer of 2015 I married my best friend, Toby Hoekstra, and we decided to take a grand leap across the United States to the beautiful state of Washington and could not be happier! When I'm not singing along to my favorite tunes, you can find me hiking the local trails with our cuddly four-legged friend, Joey (he's the one in the glasses :)
What I love most about teaching music is getting the chance to create music with each of you every day! I love having the opportunity to sing and play with you in our classes. Music is a common language that has the ability to bring us all together. Through music, we can express our emotions, share in our successes, and create a feeling of community with those around us.
