Welcome to the Music Program at Shorehaven Elementary

music notes


Music teacher: Lesdy Zapata 

What do we do? We sing. We move. We play.

How do we do it? Focus. Listen. Learn. Like good musicians do...

Making music beautifully all the way through!

My name is Ms. Zapata, I am the music teacher here at Shorehaven Elementary School, and am very excited to be your teacher! I will teach musical concepts through singing, dancing, playing instruments, movement, and exploration. Students will learn how to read and perform music and connect music to other subjects and experiences.

This music class is a place where creativity, community, and diversity are embraced and encouraged. I will ensure that every student leaves music class knowing their voice matters and that they are an essential part of our ensemble.

"Tell me, I forget, show me, I remember, involve me, I understand."- Carl Orff 

PTA music programs

Students will have the opportunity to perform what they have learned from music class in special PTA programs.
