How fortunate I am to be spending my 30th year teaching music with such wonderful students at Guy K. Stump! Besides music, my hobbies include farming, gardening, sailing and tennis. I have a very musical family. My husband, Larry Smith, teaches music at Hugh K. Cassell and is an organist. My son, Christopher, has returned from the Marines and is working towards a career in computer technology. Millie, my daughter, is entering her senioryear at George Mason University with a degree in Music Education. Both children are gifted in music.
I hope my love for music reflects in the students here at Stump. My goal is to show my students how music can be a life-long passion in their lives. By exposing them to singing, instrument playing, listening skills, movement and theater, my hope is they will gain self-assurance, value and excitement through music.
Please visit my music links often. They include note reading, musical games and family-friendly activities. If you know of other links that would benefit our music program, please send me the link! I look forward to meeting all the parents and hope you will enjoy the musical programs we have lined up for the school year!
