Mrs. Macias teaches Canterbury’s children’s choir program and collaborates with the San Francisco Opera Guild to bring several of their programs to the school during the fall and spring semesters. She helps prepare children from K4 through 5th grade learn to sing confidently and introduces them to basic music theory, including two-part harmony. She believes as children, we use our voices as instruments to express feelings, but they also serve important learning functions--they teach us pattern, pulse, rhyme, and structure. They teach us the way humans bond and express emotion; they encourage imagination and storytelling. Mrs. Macias has had a love for music, particularly singing, ever since she was a little girl and has always been captivated by the power of expressing emotion through song. She hopes to instill the same love for music in her students by incorporating games, crafts, and other activities that will also teach them practical musical techniques. She wants her students to feel empowered when they sing a piece of music because they have the tools they need to recognize, appreciate, and utilize it. Mrs. Macias has a background in music having extensive training in both piano and vocal performance. She also serves as musical director of St. Paul’s Anglican Church.
