Rachel Burkholder

Welcome to STM Catholic Music with Mrs. Burkholder. I am extremely blessed to be teaching music for my 17th year at STM Catholic. I am looking forward to a fun-filled year of music-making in all grades!!

In my classroom I will be incorporating dance, body percussion,  and the utilization of a variety of pitched and non-pitched instruments throughout the different classes.

It is truly a gift from God to be teaching your children music and I look forward to another exciting and fun-filled year!!!

Remember, "they who sing, pray twice".

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the music program here at STM Catholic.


God Bless,

Rachel Burkholder
