My name is Georgann Vetrano and have had the pleasure of working in the Round Lake District and am beginning my twelfth year. I am presently the general music at Village Elementary. In addition I am the 4th/5th grade choral director and safety patrol advisor.
I am a graduate of Ithaca College School of Music, have an elementary teaching certification from the University of South Florida, and possess a Masters Degree from Concordia University in Curriculum and Instruction.
I am the proud recipient of the Office Max "Make A Day Better" award and in 2012, I received an outstanding teacher award "Those Who Excel" from the State of Illinois.
I have lived in New York, Florida and South Carolina and bring many life and musical experiences to share with students to enhance their learning. In my free time I enjoy flower gardening, family activities, exploring architecture, car shows and attending concerts and plays.
MUSIC INSTRUCTION AT VILLAGE ELEMENTARY
This year your child will be introduced to many music genres, rhythmic notation reading, careers in music, composers, technology and dance/movement. These teachings help form the foundation for a lifetime of music enjoyment. Also, throughout the year, I will be demonstrating how music relates to language arts, math, history and physical education.
Other music opportunities your 4th or 5th grader can partake in include chorus (4th/5th grade) and recorder instruction (4th grade). Beginning band is offered for 5th graders as an after school program.
