Welcome to Music at Hayes Elementary!

Mrs. Peterson - PreK-5 Music Specialist

About Mrs. Peterson?  Originally from Wisconsin, I obtained my Bachelor of Music degree from University of Wisconsin-Whitewater with an emphasis in vocal performance.  My passion is singing, playing the piano, playing the French horn, and teaching kids.  My family moved to Texas in January 2013.  I am so excited to start my 7th year teaching at Hayes!  When I’m not at Hayes, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two boys (Kameron, 19, and Ethan, 16), and my cat, Cricket.  My hobbies include performing, reading, traveling, and cheering on the Green Bay Packers.  I look forward to making music with all of the Hayes Hawks!

Why music?  Katy ISD believes that education and engagement in the arts:  Strengthens individual learning across all curriculum disciplines by providing practical application and creative synthesis application of reading, writing, science, social studies, and mathematics.

Classroom?  In music class, students will learn essential musical concepts through the use of singing, listening activities, movement, playing instruments, and other hands-on experiences.

My Belief?  Music gives kids…..

M – Motivation to always strive for excellence

U – Universal language to express themselves

S – Self-confidence and self-worth

I – Intellectual development to learn other subjects

C – Connections to other cultures
