Elementary Music at Castle Pines 


Welcome to music at American Academy!


My name is Amanda Rusten and I am ecstatic to be leading your child's musical experience at AA. I look forward to many fun adventures with them this year as we sing, dance, compose songs, play instruments, and learn about the music in the world around us!  I strive to provide a multitude of musical experiences to encourage students to develop unique and positive connections to their music education in addition to meeting age appropriate aesthetic, expressive, creative, and conceptual (theory) standards.. Students who want to pursue their musical interest in more depth can join one of our wonderful extra-curricular performing arts classes including (but not limited to) dance, theater, choir, band, and orchestra.
