Bri is the new 2-6 General Music and 4-6 Band teacher at Academy School. Past teaching experience in the Southern and Midwestern United States allows her to bring a broad perspective into her classroom.
In music, students are given the opportunity to explore, create, and perform while developing musical literacy. Throughout the year, students are immersed in a variety of quality music literature, activities, and culturally diverse music experiences. Bri's music classroom is designed to enhance student appreciation for music, understanding of the world, and expression of self. She strives to help students become well-rounded citizens that recognize the basic human connection music provides.
Bri holds a Bachelors of Music Education and Performance from Bowling Green State University and a Masters of Voice Performance and Pedagogy from East Carolina University. She previously served as the Youth Orchestra Coordinator for the Toledo Symphony. In 2011, Bri co-founded Bowling Green Children's Opera, a touring company that brings "kid-centered" opera to elementary schools throughout the Midwest.
When not teaching, you can find Bri traveling, cooking (but mostly eating), hiking, and spending time with her husband Scott and their two dogs, Ivy and Lyla.
