Music Education from Texas Tech
Ms. Meredith Crouch
Hi! I’m Ms. Crouch and this is my first year teaching at Pilot Point Intermediate. I grew up just south of Pilot Point in Lewisville, where I learned about a community with a tradition. Lewisville High School was a place that continually taught me about coming together as a community. I am overjoyed to hear again and again that Pilot Point values that as well. I cannot wait to start making music with the students in Pilot Point!
I am a Texas Tech graduate with a degree in Music Education. I am also Level 1 Kodály certified and will continue my Kodály certifications in the coming years.
I believe that all students have the ability to use music not just in my classroom but other classrooms as well. Music studies show that memorizing any kind of fact through music can solidify something that might otherwise have been difficult to retain by oneself. Zoltan Kodály, “Often a single experience will open the young soul to music for a whole lifetime.” Music is a universal language that students can take anywhere. The joy of being a musician is being able to sit down with someone who doesn’t even speak your language and still be able to make beautiful music.
When I am not at school, you can find me drinking coffee, reading a great book, or singing my heart out to praise music or, my other favorite, opera arias.
