Mrs. Mary Thérèse Knab
Mrs. Knab teaches elementary orchestra at Beaver Creek, East Ward and West Bradford. Originally from the West Chester area, she studied music education at Immaculata University and her primary instruments are piano and violin. She directs two children’s choirs in the local area and is working towards her master’s degree in education. Mrs. Knab enjoys working with the elementary students and being a part of their orchestra journey. Students can begin orchestra in 3rd grade and perform in a beginner concert at the end of the year. Students who continue in 4th and 5th grade are part of the advanced orchestra and perform in a winter and spring concert. In order to perform these two concerts, 4thand 5th grade students participate in morning rehearsals before school to play as a group and then receive half an hour small group lessons during the school day. Participating in the orchestra program allows students the opportunity to grow in their musical abilities, develop responsibility and enjoy playing a musical instrument.
