Theresa Coe’s BIOGRAPHY

Theresa Coe has been a musician as early as she can remember. Her mother taught her piano lessons, and Theresa has always loved singing, even as a little girl; either as a soloist or in choirs since elementary school. Theresa attended schools in the Tempe, AZ School District ; Hudson Elementary School, then McKemy Jr. High and McClintock High School. Theresa graduated in 1991 from Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana with a Music Education degree. She obtained her Human Relations Masters degree at NAU in 2000. 

Theresa has been teaching elementary music since 1991. She began her career in Port-au-Prince, Haiti at a private school named Union School, where she lived for 5 years. Theresa moved back to Arizona permanently in 1996, when she began teaching at Falcon Hill Elementary, among other elementary schools in the Mesa District, as a travelling general music teacher. Theresa also teaches General Music at Taft Elementary. Theresa is proud to be a part of such a wonderful district that fosters learning and constant student achievement in all their programs.  It is an honor to be part of the MPS Music Department.

Holiday Sing ALong Songs

American Folk Music

You will hear a LOT of high energy, hand clapping music in original folk music. It's all acoustic since there was not electricity 'back in the day'. You will imagine a country dance perhaps, with people swinging each other around by the arms and smiling. Violins. washboards, some drums. banjos and maybe even a broom tapping to keep a crisp sound! There's nothin' like a good ol' American Hoedown!
