Meet the Teacher


Glen Chilcote

2014 Montgomery County Teacher of the Year

The music department at Kipps Elementary School is based on the practices of Orff-Schulwerk - a child centered way to teach and learn music.  The goal of each class is to learn about music in a non-competitive atmosphere where one of the rewards is making music with others. To learn more about Orff-Schulwerk visit their website by clicking here.
Students sing, say, move, and play during each music lesson; each class has music once a week for 45 minutes.  Students also explore, imitate, improvise, listen, and compose music throughout the year.
If you have any questions about the music program or the extra-curricular groups, please contact Glen Chilcote at [email protected]
