Music

About our music teacher Amy Crone

Hello! My name is Amy Crone and I am from Wylie, Texas. I began my musical career 12 years ago when I picked up the flute. I continued loving and learning music all throughout high school and college, graduating from Texas A&M- Commerce with a Bachelor of Science in Music Education. This is my second year in Garland and I am very excited to be a part of the Garland ISD family! I look forward to a wonderful year together. 

Welcome to Music! 

In Music class, students learn the basics of music, which are used as building blocks as they advance grade levels. Music class provides an environment for students to learn musical concepts that they may use to creatively express themselves. Students sing, listen, move, play musical instruments and games, watch musical performances, and more. Music has a multitude of hidden treasures that are taught in between the lines. It gives students an opportunity to learn new skills and interact among their peers. 

Our goal is not only to raise great musicians, but to raise great people. My hope is that every child will find success in their music that will later translate into a variety of life endeavors.

Art

Welcome to Mr. Tejani's Art classroom!

Hello, my name is Mr. Tejani, and I am the Elementary Art teacher for both Centerville and Freeman elementary schools. I am very happy to be part of the Garland ISD family, and this will be my second year of teaching Art for Garland Independent School District. 

In the past, I have taught Art in New Mexico and Colorado at both the elementary and middle school levels.

The areas of art that I concentrated on both at the undergraduate and graduate level include Painting (mostly expressionistic using acrylic) Photography (both digital and darkroom) Multicultural Perspectives in Art, Art History, Art Appreciation, and Fiber.

I wanted to welcome all my students and mostly express that Art is about being creative while having fun! Participation is an important factor for improving our Art skills. And therefore, I look forward to all of you participating, being creative, and having fun.
