My name is Brittany Hansen and this will be my 5th year teaching General Music. I grew up in Loves Park, IL and graduated from Concordia University Chicago Summa Cum Laude with my bachelors degree in Music Education and Piano Pedagogy Certificate in 2014. My teaching journey has taken me to a number of cities including Oak Park, IL and River Forest, IL (just outside of Chicago), Annapolis, MD, and now to Roscoe, IL. I have taught a variety of age levels including Pre-K through 5th Grade as well as private piano lessons for students ages 5 through high school. I have also given lessons on a variety of band and string instruments. I have taught chorus for 4th and 5th grade students as well. I enjoy playing many instruments, but my favorite are piano, flute, and ukulele. I am an Orff and Kodály inspired teacher who focuses on giving students a solid musical foundation. I am working toward my Kodály certification and have completed Level I from DePaul University. I am looking forward to a wonderful first year in the Kinnikinnick School District!
