Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Heather Ambrose. I am so thrilled to be teaching music at Mirage for the third year in a row. This will be my seventh year teaching overall. I have my Bachelors degree in Music Education from Northern Arizona University, and my Masters degree in Reading in Curriculum and Instruction from Grand Canyon University. I was born and raised here in Arizona and am a proud desert girl. When I am not teaching I love to cook, make crafts, travel, and take bike rides around the neighborhood with my husband.
I am excited to continue helping students ignite their creativity in our General Music classes. In these classes, students will learn how to sing, dance, play instruments, and learn how read rhythms and notes. I have a strong background in teaching violin using the Suzuki Method, and for part of the year, every 3rd grader gets to learn how to play it. I also teach choir here at Mirage to provide an outlet for those students who love to sing and perform. Choir is available to 4th-6th graders. It is going to be a great year!
