Hello! My name is Kayleigh Cook and I will be teaching band lessons in Barker Rd Middle School, as well as general music in Thornell Rd and Park Rd Elementary Schools. I am very excited to be teaching in multiple types of music classes because I have always enjoyed singing, playing my french horn in small ensembles, and making new types of music, and I get to share all of that with my students. I am a native Long Islander, but found myself in Rochester for my undergrad, where I attended the Eastman School of Music. I am currently working on my Master's degree in music education at SUNY Potsdam, where I have been focusing on digital music making (especially this summer). My philosophy is that everyone can be musical, and my job as an educator is to give students the skills and space to perform, create, and think critically about music.
When not teaching, I perform in community ensembles, dance ballet, play board games, and listen to many history and Disney parks podcasts.
