Welcome to Highland Park Music!
This is Mrs. Satterwhite's ninth year teaching at Highland Park, and her twentieth year teaching Music. She earned a Bachelor's in Music Education with a voice concentration from Sam Houston State University, and a Masters in Kodaly Pedagogy from Texas State University. She directs the Scottie Singers at HP and the praise music group at her church. She loves teaching at Highland Park because the students, teachers, administration, and parents are simply the best!
Children naturally enjoy music. The more that they know about music, the more they like it. The job of the music teacher is to present music concepts in a sequential order that are both enjoyable and accessible to the student. Children are actively engaged in making music during class. Singing, playing, listening, reading, writing, moving to and with music are the core of the music curriculum.
