Welcome to Music at Highlands Elementary! My name is Holley Linder and I am from Fort Worth, TX. My love for music began with my Elementary Music Teacher and I began taking piano lessons when I was 8. I went to Stephen F. Austin State University, where I received my Bachelor of Music. This is my 14th year teaching, 12 of which have been in Fort Bend ISD. I am starting my 3rd year here at Highlands Elementary.
While I started playing piano at 8, when I was 12, I quickly developed a love for the French horn. I still continue to play by teaching a few private lessons and by playing in the Orchestra at my church. I enjoy getting to play my instrument whenever possible.
Outside of the classroom, I love spending time with my family. My husband, Brandon, and I have been married for 10 ½ years. We have beautiful twin daughters who are in First Grade at Highlands. We are avid Houston Astros fans. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and crafts.
I’m excited to share my love of Music with the students here at Highlands Elementary.
