Music - Elementary - Susanna Jacobson

Ms. Jacobson PhotoAs a 2nd-year teacher, I am delighted to be among the wonderful staff and students here at RMAE. I studied Music Education at CU Boulder (go BUFFS!) with voice as my primary “instrument” and graduated in May of 2017.

In my classroom, we focus on becoming active music-makers. My students spend a lot of time working together playing instruments, singing, folk dance, and creative dance. We then use these experiences to contextualize elements of music theory and music history. I believe music not only unites the mind, body, and soul; it is also a wonderful tool for teaching life skills, such as working toward a goal as a group.

In addition to teaching, I also work as the assistant choir director and children’s choir director at a local church. Sharing the joy of music with children is one of the greatest blessings in my life.
