My name is Amanda Price, and this will be my first year teaching music at Columbia Academy. A graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, I have earned a Bachelor of Music concentrating on PK-12 Music Education, and hold current teaching certifications with the states of Maryland and Virginia. I taught elementary band, orchestra, and general music in Arlington County Public Schools for two years, and taught middle school choir in Howard County for one year. Music is an integral part of being human; we create it, we recreate it, we listen to it every day. We distinguish voices of different pitches and timbres over the phone. We sing in the shower. We beat out rhythms with our hands on the steering wheel as we sit in traffic. Music is important to us; Music Education is what helps us to realize that. My students will sing, dance, play instruments, study theory and history, and explore music through various projects and activities. I look forward to guiding every student on their journey here at Columbia Academy!
