My name is Rae Ramsey. I am the Music Specialist here at Bob Lewis. I also direct the Lewis Choir and work with the Lewis Strings. I love teaching students to expereince, perform and create their own music.
I began taking piano lessons and singing in church choirs when I was very young. I began playing piano for churches and choirs when I was in middle school. I played guitar and sang in a folk music group when in high school. I have performed in musicals, operas, and toured with an acting company for 2 years.
My family is filled with musicians. Both of my boys sang in choirs and played in the high school band, and my youngest son taught the Warren HS drum line for 2 years. My mother still sings and perfroms with 2 different groups here in San Antonio. My sister sings with her church choir. My daughter-in-law is an awesome music teacher in another city, and she is my grand-daughter's music teacher.
I have 2 married sons and 4 grandchildren. I graduated from Baylor University (GO BEARS!) with a Bachelor of Music degree. I also earned a Level III certification in Kodaly instruction. This will be my 39th year of teaching music. I joined the Lewis staff in 2011-2012, and really enjoy making music with your children.
Lewis students begin reading music with pictures for beat, rhythm, and melody in Kindergarten. By the Fifth Grade, the students are able to read and create their own music, and perform with proficiency. No matter what we are learning, it will be fun and interactive.
I can't wait to see what we are able to achieve in Music this year!
