Hello my name is Evona Wascinski (Ms. W). This will be my 5th year teaching at KLA and I am delighted and honored to be a part of this great KLA team.
This year I am very exited to continue teaching general music to all KLA students in K-2nd grade, recorder and general music to our 3rd grade students and violin to 4th- 5th grade students.
Also, I am very excited to be co-teaching the secondary( 6th- 8th grade) Stings class this year with Mr. Eikam.
*The general K-2nd grade music class will focus on developing basic music skills. It will include listening, singing, movement and percussion drumming group activities.
*3rd grade will be focusing on basic music skills and learning to play the recorder. Students will be asked to purchase a recorder/book pack for the class for $10, which will be available for purchase on campus.
*4th-5th grade Violin Class students will be focusing on learning to play the violin as well as some basic music theory. Students are required to rent or buy their own violins. More information will be sent home with students on their first day of music class.
I am very passionate about music and teaching and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to teach your child and learn from them as well.
We will have two concerts on campus this year December 13th and June 13th, both will be starting around 1pm and be in the auditorium. Parents are welcome to join. This year we will also have an additional off campus concert Saturday January 23rd at the Kroc Center at noon.
A little background information on me:
I received an Associates Degree in Music from Grossmont College and a Bachelors of Arts Degree in Music from the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). In my studies I focused on classical double bass performance and Jazz Studies. Double Bass is the big violin looking instrument. It has many names including: Contra Bass and Upright Bass. I've been playing the double bass for over 20 years and been an active professional musician for over 15 years.
In my spare time I love to spend time with my 6 year old son Sebastian, and my family and friends.
I love to go out to listen to and perform music, read, ride bikes, exercise, do yoga and spend lots of time outside.
