We are musicians who like to listen to music, discuss music and create music. We know that classroom music experiences:
- let us explore a variety of music genres and styles
- help us to make aesthetic judgments
- connect us to the past and other cultures
- allow us to uniquely express our own ideas and emotions.
We will be inspired to be life-long lovers of music, performers, and consumers of music by following "The Resnik Way" each day.
Ms. Zabel Mr. Báez
Ms. Zabel has been teaching music for many years and is absolutely delighted to be the full-time music teacher at Resnik. She especially loves working with the chorus students. In her spare time, she enjoys taking classes regarding Orff Schulwerk, World Drumming, and ballroom dancing.
Mr. Báez teaches music at Resnik on Mondays and Tuesdays. He is also the music teacher at Waters Landing in Germantown. He holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Conservatory of Music of Puerto Rico and a Master of Music degree from the University of North Texas.
