Biography

My name is Mrs. Janelle Graham.  This is my fourteenth year of teaching vocal music at Masters Elementary and my twenty-second year working for Omaha Public Schools.  Every student, from Kindergarten through 5th grade, has Music once a week for 50 minutes.  We address the basics of music theory and singing; we also learn about culture, science, math, history, and reading.  Music is an art that springs from the depth of human experience; as a music teacher, my hope is that students learn to not only understand, but also appreciate the music in their own lives.


Besides singing, I also play piano, violin, harp, clarinet, and a number of percussion instruments.  I am happily married, and have two wonderful daughters; spending time with my family is very important to me. My hobbies include reading, cooking, writing, gaming, composing, and playing with our two tortoiseshell cats.
