Dear Nazareth Families,
As you know, our school has shifted to online learning in order to keep our children and families safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
I will be posting weekly music lessons and activities for all grades on Google Classroom. Please use these classroom codes in order to gain access:
1st Grade: pwtgsp5
2nd Grade: bl7kfmw
3rd Grade: pv4tfh3
4th Grade: h7dcabz
5th Grade: 7kp3isg
6th Grade: vjyflsw
I encourage as many students to be connected as often as possible. It takes practice to gain and maintain musical skills and we don't need to let the coronavirus stop us. Music is good for the soul. Let's keep the music going!
Degrees and Certifications:
Sister Anita Kurowski, SSJ
Welcome to the MUSIC Section!
My name is Sister Anita Kurowski, and I am a Sister of St. Joseph. The children call me Sister Anita. I began working at Nazareth Elementary in 2011 and since that time I have been thrilled to watch the children grow in their knowledge and love of music. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education as well as a Master in Liberal Arts (with Music Concentration) from Nazareth College.
I believe it is part of our human nature to express feelings and create connections through music making. Music is also one special way of experiencing the Holy Spirit. At Nazareth the children learn that music can enhance their life anywhere — in the classroom, on the bus, in the cafeteria, at special performances, and during Masses and Prayer Services.
I teach general music and chorus for all grades and dance for grades 2-6 at Nazareth. I also direct our after-school Children's Choir for students in grades 3–6. For specific information on each of these areas, click the links on the left side of this page.
We are blessed to have a general music and chorus room filled with percussion equipment, recorders, keyboards, guitars, and lots of space for dancing as well as a smaller space for instrumental lessons, taught by Ms. Kathryn Brown.
It is truly a privilege for me to enter the world of music making with your children. May the music that is already in their hearts reach out and make the world a more beautiful place!
