Mrs. Janet Rice
Hello! I am thrilled to be the music teacher for the students of Maple Grove Elementary. I am happily married and have been a band member "on the road" with my husband. I have two masters degrees in music: Music Composition and Master of Arts Teaching, Vocal and Instrumental. Music therapy is also my certification; I love sharing music with children for goals of social, learning, behavioral and learning needs. My passion for music extends to all genres: classical, pop, jazz, country, Broadway, folk, ethnic and more. Inviting the students to share their own performances within the classroom is a daily part of our community expression. Students will learn not only how to perform the music for others, but also how to be a great listening audience! Music should be shared always, encouraging self expression and creativity everywhere, for everyone.
