Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Global Arts Plus!
My name is Sarah Kneeland (she/her), the choir specialist at Global Arts Plus Upper, working with 7th and 8th grade! I'm so excited to be in my second year teaching choir at Global Arts Plus Upper campus!
I grew up in Northern Minnesota and went to MSUM in Moorhead, Minnesota for my B.S. in K-12 Vocal Music Education. I was lucky enough to move to Minneapolis to pursue a Masters Degree in Music Therapy and interned at our wonderful school during the 2016-17 school year. When the opportunity arose to teach choir here, I JUMPED at the chance and feel continually blessed to be back at Global Arts Plus!
This year in choir, we will work on learning the proper care and maintenance of our voices through vocal warmups and small vocal biology lessons. We will bring in some music theory to raise our awareness of what it's like to sing in a choir and last but not least, we will use that knowledge to explore new music that we'll be learning together. We will use creative ways to record and perform this music, so stay tuned!
