Hi! I am Ms. Elliott. I feel very fortunate to be teaching in such beautiful facilities with such wonderful staff and students here at Cortines School of VAPA. Prior to teaching here, I taught 1 year of general music at 2 Los Angeles area Catholic schools. I then went on to teach instrumental music for 10 years at Nightingale Middle School in Cypress Park. There I worked to build up a music program that is one of the strongest in LAUSD. Here at Cortines, I teach orchestra, beginning band and music tech. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in music education and saxophone performance from UCLA and a teaching credential and Master of Arts degree in music education from CSUN. In addition, I have achieved the honor of earning National Board Certification in Music.
These great organizations work with our students providing individual and group lessons, opportunities to see rehearsals and performances and opportunities for our students to perform with professional musicians.
