|Position:||General Music, Choir|
Hello and welcome to General Music! My name is Heather Prusse and I am so excited to be part of the Hancock family this year! In music class we will sing, dance, play instruments, study composers and music theory, play games and learn to appreciate new styles of music from all around the world.
My Education and Professional Background
I was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University. After teaching elementary school in Utah and Texas, I taught private group voice and piano lessons for 20 years. From 2014-2020, I developed preschool music curriculum for the Let’s Play Music company and managed their Sound Beginnings program. I love to direct and sing in community choirs and I am a vocal recording artist.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe there is a musician inside every child and that music is essential to education. I value creativity, community and diversity. My goal is for every child who leaves my classroom to know that their voice matters and to feel uplifted by the power of music.
