Musical Arts 

Teacher: Ella Zhang - Email

In our Musical Arts class, students get to discover lots of different types of music, like different kinds of songs and instruments. We don't just talk about music; we do it together! We play fun games and activities that help students learn important music skills and show their own creative ideas. As the musical arts teachers, my goal is to make students really love music and learn how to work together and be themselves. What's really special about our class is that we also care about how students feel. We create a safe and friendly space for them to understand their feelings, get better at making friends, and feel good about themselves. We believe that music can help students grow as individuals and do well in school.

Hi, I am Ella Zhang. Students know me as Ella Laoshi. I am grateful for joining the specials team and being an Musical Arts teacher this year. I joined Yu Ying in 2019 as a kindergarten Chinese teaching fellow and, later, an interim kindergarten Chinese lead teacher. 

I was born in the central area of China and moved to the USA for the graduate program in 2016. My background is music education specializing in vocal and piano. I started playing piano and learned music when I was eight years old. Music has been a great passion of mine. I am so happy that I get to share with students at Yu Ying.
