Welcome to music! My name is Mindi Eilers and I have been the music specialist at Dos Rios for 13 years. I love teaching music and helping kids discover that music can be a lot of fun. We sing songs and play basic instruments like recorders, boomwhackers and sometimes, even TRASH CANS! In music class, we listen to many different types of music and learn how to read music. Music and literacy work together, so we often use stories and poetry to help us be excellent musicians.
There are many ways kids can enjoy music at Dos Rios. We are excited to bring MOVIC back for a second year. MOVIC combines movement from PE with beat, rhythm and style from Music to create a really fun performance. If MOVIC doesn't work, students can also participate in Recorder Karate or piano lessons. I am always looking for ways to get kids excited about music, so stay tuned for future adventures!
I started taking piano lessons when I was 4 and picked up the flute in 5th grade. Music has been an important part of my life and I hope to bring that same impact to the lives of many children.
