Mrs. Rachel Brown

Hi everyone! I'm Mrs. Brown, general music teacher and string specialist at Charles Kelly Elementary School. I have been teaching in Upper Darby my whole teaching career - and I love it here! My two main instruments are flute and voice, but I continue to enjoy practicing piano, strings and guitar. I am a proud graduate (twice!) of West Chester University. 

I love playing music and teaching kids how to make music for themselves and their families and friends. I believe everyone is a musician and singer -- everyone can participate and enjoy the benefits of time spent making music. 

I also believe that learning an instrument teaches the foundations of how to be a good listener, friend, and community member. My goal is to create a classroom environment where everyone is welcome to bring the experiences and talents unique to them so we can all learn an flourish.
