About the Music Teacher
Hello, my name is Michael Whitaker, and I am the music teacher here at Mission Bend Elementary. I have been teaching music here since 2004. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from The University of North Texas, and I am certified in the state of Texas to teach classes from Kindergarten to 12th grade.
During this school year, my goal is to teach the students the fundamentals of music including rhythm and notation. We will learn historical styles of music, dynamics and tempo, and music of many cultures.
In my leisure time, I enjoy playing and singing music, reading and collecting records. It is a pleasure to be working with such wonderful students and colleagues at Mission Bend Elementary.
