ABOUT YOUR TEACHER Hi! I'm Erin Dunne and I have been teaching elementary music for 12 years (10 in Brevard county). This is my 4th year teaching general music at Manatee Elementary. Along with teaching every class once a week for 40 minutes, I teach Beginning and Intermediate Strings before school and this spring will direct our 5th & 6th grade students in a large musical production after school.
I decided to become a music teacher when I was in elementary school myself. I loved singing and in middle school I joined band and played the flute. During high school I became involved with a local community theater, performing both in the pit orchestra and on stage. I also loved participating in marching band and high school chorus. I decided to attend Florida State University as their College of Music was ranked top 25 in the country. In 2006 I graduated with my Bachelors Degree in Music Education and I am certified to teach any and all music classes in grades K-12. I've taught students in grades K-8 and elementary students are my favorite! I can't wait to help you develop into confident, life-long musicians!
