Hi there! My name is Mrs. Hinz, and I teach elementary music! (My last name is pronounced 'heinz', yes, like the ketchup...)
This year is going to be a great year! Especially because I will be teaching Music Education to ALL South Lake Elementary students!
Here's a little info about me..
I graduated from Concordia University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. I have been teaching music for five years and have taught every grade and category of music, from Marching Band to Hand Bells and even AP Music Composition! My favorite instrument to play is my drumset, which I have been playing since I was six years old. My favorite instrument to teach is the tuba (because its sound makes everyone laugh ). My favorite place in the world is actually a musical place, called Interlochen Center for the Arts. As a high school student, I studied choral music at Interlochen Arts Camp, and even experience a summer there as a camp counselor!
This year I have the priviledge of participating in the South Lake- Apple Pioneer program! This will give the elementary students the opportunity to experience technology in the music classroom. STAY TUNED for the weekly update!
Outside of teaching music, I also coach a Girls on the Run team at Avalon Elementary! Girls on the Run is an exciting and life changing opportunity for young girls to learn the importance living a healthy life style, while also teaching them to encourage others, and build self-confidence.

Thank you for taking the time to check out the website! I look forward to having a great year with your students!
Keep on singing!
