Welcome to the Payne JHS Orchestra program!

My Education and Professional Background

Mrs. Dopp has been an Orchestra teacher in the Chandler Unified school district since 1995. Before that time she taught various music classes in Paldale, California for six years. In addition to her position in CUSD, Mrs. Dopp taught String Pedagogy and the Mariachi Ethnomusicology Ensemble at Arizona State University. She also plays with her family fiddle band. Mrs. Dopp holds Bachelors and Masters Degrees from Chapman University in Psychology and Education (Curriculum and Instruction) as well as a Masters Degree from Arizona State University in Music Education. She is currently completing her PhD in Music Education.

My Educational Philosophy

Music the only way of knowing through sound alone. By learning to play an instrument, students can communicate through a unique aspect of their intelligence. My goal is to share my love of music with my students and challenge them to grow and progress musically.
