Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Emerick Families! I am very excited to begin my 4th year at this "Blue Ribbon" school! I know all of us are feeling blue about the start of school due to the pandemic. I miss my adorable students, outstanding staff and relatable parents! I hope you are all well! But I will try my best to get the kids excited about music as it will always be my passion!
My history: I am originally from Toledo, Ohio and my husband Ken is from Newfoundland, Canada; we moved to Leesburg 11 years ago. Ken teaches chorus/piano at Washington High School in Charles Town, WV. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance. I love to sing!! I have performed in over 150 community Musicals in Ohio and Michigan and hope to someday grace the stages of the DMV area!
As far as performances, we will have to wait and see what the future holds. I tell everyone that having the students perform is my FAVORITE part of my job! I love to watch them unfold as their confidence begins to build. In the meantime, I appreciate your patience with the virtual lessons as we may need to use resources from home.
I promise to follow the Virginia Music Standards to make sure they are getting as much opportunities as they deserve!! Please feel free to email or talk to me about anything at all!! I love to stay in touch with the community and build relationships with my school families.
Musically yours, Mrs. Eberhardt
