Mrs. Bethany McKernan
My name is Mrs. McKernan and I am very excited to be teaching your child/children at Como Park. I have been teaching music in Lancaster since 2007. I received my Bachelor's in Music Education from Buffalo State College in 2007. I went on to complete my master's degree from the University at Buffalo. My primary instrument is my voice but I also have experience playing the flute, saxophone, and piano. I continue to perform weekly as a vocalist in my church's contemporary band and at weddings and other events.
Music is an amazing subject that allows your child to express themselves in new ways. In my music classroom students have the opportunity to perform, create, and improvise music on a variety of instruments. We spend a lot of time developing important musical skills such as steady beat, rhythm, singing voices, and reading music. The goal is to prepare your child for instrumental and/or choral instruction in 4th grade and to give them a love for music. If you have any questions about the curriculum feel free to stop in or give me call at school.
