Welcome to my class!
My name is Dawn Kalvig, and I am blessed to be the music specialist at Humphrey Elementary for students in Grade Kindergarten through Grade Four. I consider it an honor to introduce students to the joy of making music together. It is a pleasure to watch the student's faces light up in delight as we explore melody, rhythm, harmony, form, and tone color together.
I had an exciting opportunity to travel to the countries of Uganda and Dominican Republic of the Congo on a mission trip to Africa. I was a very eager student as the natives shared their music and culture with me. I am excited to bring those experiences into my music classroom as we explore Swahili songs, African dance, singing games, and drumming.
Some new things in the music room include the online Quaver music curriculum and the addition of Recorder Karate for our fourth grade students.
I currently live in Winsted and stay active in my church by playing in a worship band, and serving on the church leadership council. I enjoy reading, travel, musical activities, and spending time with family and friends in my spare time.
