Knutson and dog

This is my 2nd year of teaching K-12 General and Vocal Music at Birchwood. I grew up in Rice Lake, WI and live with my Goldendoodle, Koda.

I attended the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse with a Major in Vocal and General Music Education, and was a French Horn recital short of completing my Instrumental Music Degree. I have taught Vocal Music in Arcadia, WI and Fort Wayne, IN. I was the Director of Education at the Corporate Office at Schmitt Music in Brooklyn Center, MN.

I am trained in Global Music and World Music Drumming and have performed at Carnegie Hall in New York City. I play a variety of instruments including piano, guitar (acoustic, electric and bass), ukulele, drums, organ, handbells, banjo, mandolin, French horn, trumpet, baritone and a numerous other instruments.

In my teaching, I utilize drums, ukulele, guitars and a variety of other methods in all of the grade levels that I work with.
