Ms. Marcie Young
Welcome to Ms. Youngs' Music Page !
I teach General Music and Band at Rio Vista. The General Music program encompasses K - 5 grade students for 50 minutes once a week. The Band Program is taught to 4 - 5 grades students. I have two groups for band first year students and second year students. First year students will meet on Monday mornings starting at 7:45 a.m. in the music room. Second year students will meet on Tuesday monrings at 7:45 a.m. Both groups will meet on Wednesday mornings at 7:45 a.m. There will not be any transportation. Please arrange transportation for your child.
I am a graduate of the University of Arizona and I have been teaching in the Amphitheater School District music program since 1988. I have had the privilege of teaching in every school in this district. I am very proud to have found my permanent home with the Rio Vista family. Teaching music is my life long passion and I do hope that my enthusiasm for my subject area is contagious. Catch the music bug!
My Defining Moment in Education
Many people talk about a defining moment when they knew what they wanted to do or a moment in time that inspired them to do what they are doing today. I don’t really remember a moment like that; I always knew I wanted to be involved in music . I have been performing either in church or community programs since I was old enough to stand in front of a group of people. My Mother loved to play piano and as a family would sing together on Sundays. When we had family friends visit for dinner we included them in the fun too!
