• Hi! My name is Ms. Beard and this is my fifth year teaching strings in the Upper Merion Area School District.  Over the past few years, I've been performing and teaching strings all over: New York, Delaware, Ohio, and even in Ireland and China!  Now, I am SO thrilled to have made my way to the UMASD to start making music with the Elementary String Champions!

     

    A little about me!

    I grew up and studied music in New York and I received my Bachelor's degree in Music Education from the Crane School of Music and my Master's degree in Viola Performance from the University of Delaware. Image result for violin gif

    I love to kayak, craft, hike, and play with my cat, Marty! Related image
