General Music Council


Hello general music teachers!

I’m Elizabeth Ford, your new GMC Chair!  I’m beginning my fifth year on this council and am excited about stepping into this leadership role.  

I’m also thrilled to have Cathy Keller as my Chair-Elect!  We began our terms on the council together four years ago and I know we’re going to make an awesome team.  Shannon Glenn will be stepping in as our secretary/treasurer.  She’s served in every position on this council and brings valuable knowledge and experience.

Our council already consists of tight-knight, hard-working volunteers.  After the recent election, we’ve added some wonderful new members that are sure to turn our team into a powerhouse! (Karissa Swanson- Dist. 1, Paul Maley- Dist. 3, Rebecca Walker- Dist. 5, Kalinda Theobold – Dist. 7)  I’m thrilled with all the fresh ideas they bring to the table.

Our council is already looking forward to the 2020 Conference!  We’ve locked in some headlining presenters and are looking to add more evening opportunities for the GMC membership such as late night folk dancing and drumming!
