Music - Kristen Turkosz

Welcome to General Music at Peck Place!

About Mrs. Turkosz: As a graduate of the University of Connecticut and an elementary music educator for the past ten years, I have experience working with students of various backgrounds, ages, and proficiencies. I believe that all students should be endowed with musical experiences, allowing them to explore and to reap the educational benefits that music has to offer. Music enables students to create, think analytically, collaborate with peers, make decisions, develop discipline, and build self-esteem.

I currently live in Shelton with my husband and two sons. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, crocheting, letterboxing, and running. I am looking forward to an exciting year of making music and learning with the students at Peck Place!

Music Class Information: Please visit the Peck Place School Specialists Facebook page for updates regarding concerts, student learning, examples of student work, and more. You can also check out the Peck Place Music Blog at http://peckplacemusic.blogspot.com for more information and links to great music websites. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, do not hesitate to contact me at 203-891-8034 or kturkosz@orange-ed.org.

Music Class Expectations

To get along with all my friends and Mrs. Turkosz too, when I come to music class, five things I must do:
  • Follow directions the first time they're given.
  • Raise your hand and wait to be called.
  • Keep your hands and your feet and your objects to yourself.
  • Play the instruments only when told.
  • Participate! That means join in the fun.
