VANESSA COUNTE, DIRECTOR OF CHOIRS

MISSION STATEMENT
It is my belief that through teaching music I can mold more sensitive, more confident, and more humane students.  The middle school student truly resonates with my personality and teaching methods.  I love that middle school students are still enthusiastic learners yet able to understand higher musical concepts.  I consider it both an honor and pleasure to teach, guide, and encourage my students toward higher musical development. Hopefully, I can also empower them to be more open individuals along the way.
