August 2017


Dear Inez ES parents,


My name is Paula Currier and I am excited about teaching elementary music for the 2017-2018

school year here at Inez ES.

I have over 23 years experience teaching elementary music, including 5 years with APS.


Some of the concepts and skills addressed will include keeping a steady beat, singing, playing a variety of

classroom instruments, matching pitch, moving, listening, creating

and improvising, with an emphasis on learning the fun way.


My goal is to expose the students to a variety of multicultural musical experiences to broaden their

understanding of world music.


Music supports reading, math, social studies, critical thinking skills, and several other subject areas.

Please take time to ask your child what they learned in music each week.

Encourage your child to sing you a song, and allow them opportunities to listen different styles of music.


Please feel free to attend your child’s music class, either to participate or observe.

Just let me know ahead of time through the school office.


If you need to contact me, please email me at


I look forward to working with your children this year.


Thank you,


Paula Currier

APS Elementary Music Specialist
