Welcome to music! I teach General Music and Choir at Santan Elementary. (Grades K-6) Music is offered to every student at Santan K-4. When students enter 5th grade, they get to pick from the three options: Band, Orchestra, or General Music. Choir Club is also offered to all 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students. (We meed at 7:45am on Tuesdays) If you have questions, please feel free to email me at rittenhouse.lisa@cusd80.com. I look forward to teaching and learning from your child.

My Education and Professional Background

My name is Lisa Rittenhouse and I am originally from Napa, California. I grew up in the Bay Area, so I am a huge SF Giants Fan! I moved to Flagstaff to go to NAU for Music Education and have made Chandler my home! I have both my Bachelors and Masters Degrees from NAU in Music Performance/Education. I began teaching in 2004 and would never do anything else! I truly enjoy making music everyday with children and love seeing the joy in their eyes that it brings them.

My Educational Philosophy

I believe that music is a universal language that everyone can speak. I am a firm believer that children can communicate through this language. My classroom is a place where children can sing, play, dance, read, compose, listen, and create.
