Piano and Choir
Hi! My name is Beth Waak and I am the new Choir Director and Piano Instructor at BMS . A recent transplant to Bastrop, I am excited to be here and work with the wonderful students I have met both online and in person. Before coming to BMS I taught for 23 years in Victoria, TX and in Kenedy, TX before that. In addition to directing both children, youth, and adult choirs, I have taught private piano instruction for many decades and have been a classroom music teacher for grades 3K-6th grade and taught an 8th grade music elective class. I earned a Bachelors of Music Education from Texas Lutheran University in Seguin and then went on to teach/conduct in Minnesota and Wisconsin before moving back to Texas.
My philosophy is that every child can find their niche in music whether it be in singing, listening, performing, or playing for their own enjoyment and it is my privilege to help each one discover that place and grow in their musical experience.
