“To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love, For it is in giving that we receive. . .”
~ from The Prayer of Saint Francis

My name is Lucy Neary and this is my tenth year teaching Music and directing choir at Holy Cross. I graduated from Gonzaga University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Vocal Performance and a Bachelor of Arts in Music education, as well as a certification in Elementary Education and a minor in Conducting. I received a Masters in Choral Conducting from Portland State University in 2014.

In Music class, students in all grade levels will continue to learn how to read music! They will identify note names and rhythmic patterns. Students will learn new aspects of Music Theory, like how to build major and minor scales, how to identify time signatures and key signatures, and how to compose their own music. Additionally, we will begin analyzing music using concepts from Music Theory. We will investigate Music History through projects on composers, musical genres, and musical eras. In addition to Theory and History, students will learn to sing properly with daily warm ups. Students will also learn to play the piano using our thirty keyboards. I look forward to a great year of music making!
