Music at the Elementary Schools


This year Whittier City District elementary schools have music appreciation classes taught during school hours for all 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students.

These academically enriched, hands on music classes are taught by music teacher, Ingrid Praniuk, who has CA teaching credentials in music, Spanish and multiple subjects and who also teaches music at the college level. These classes prepare Whittier City District students for middle school and high school band, choir, drama, and guitar classes.
