Meet Mrs. McFarland
Welcome to the new PCS Music website! My name is Katie McFarland and I will be your music teacher. I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maine with a Bachelor's degree in Music Education. My main instrument is clarinet and I was principal clarinetist of the Symphonic Band my final year in college. I am currently a Music Education graduate student at Adams State University. I am certified in the Orff Schulwerk, First Steps in Music and Conversational Solfege.
I live in South Paris with my husband, Duncan. Both of us are music teachers which means we spend a lot of time making, teaching, and listening to music!
My favorite thing about being a music teacher is getting other people excited about music! It is part of what makes us human and helps us develop sensitivity, teamwork, self-discipline, and purpose in our lives.
Outside of music class I like to visit new places, bake, go to festivals and museums, surprise other people, tease kitties, and visit the ocean.
I have a feeling that it is going to be marvelous year with some awesome students!
