Hello! My name is Ms. Bae and I am the district band director and assistant orchestra director. I am a recent graduate from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign with a Bachelor in Music Education.
I have wanted to be a band director since I was in 7th grade, so I am super excited to be teaching this year! My first instrument was clarinet, but I also love playing the trumpet as well. When I was a student, I loved being a part of the band program because of my teacher and the band culture. My band class was my favorite part of my day and I always felt like I had a community that I could rely on. I hope to be able to cultivate this culture in my own program and be a teacher that my students can feel connected to as well.
Please feel free to reach out via email anytime if you have any questions about the program!
