|Position:||5th and 6th grade Orchestra|
Hello. I am Lucile Kellis. I teach orchestra in the Chandler Unified School District. I am a traveling teacher because I teach at multiple schools every day. I teach around two hundred 5th and 6th grade students each year.
My Education and Professional Background
Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Music Education with strings concentration from ASU, 2005 and 2010
My Educational Philosophy
I love teaching children to play orchestral instruments. I consider my teaching as a partnership with parents as we encourage our students to practice regularly at home and bring their instrument and music to school on the correct days for orchestra class. If my students will try their best to do as I instruct, they will learn to play well. This will bring joy and happiness to themselves and to their family members for their entire life. My orchestras are known for their excellent performances. I teach my students to present themselves with poise on stage by wearing nice clothes, sitting with good playing posture, holding their bows correctly, putting their fingers in precisely the correct place on the fingerboard, and bowing graciously after each selection on the concert. All of this further contributes to beautiful sound production.
