Welcome to Music, Language and Culture!

Bienvenidos a la clase de Musica, Lenguaje y Cultura!

Welcome to Music, Language and Culture!

My name is Emily Olson de Alvarez, and I teach Music, Language and Culture here at Sheridan Arts Spanish Dual Immersion. I am originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and graduated from Milwaukee High School of the Arts, a public arts magnet high school. I first migrated to Minneapolis to attend the University of Minnesota, where I graduated with a degree in Music Education, with my primary instrument being the clarinet. I am in my 14th year of teaching, my 4th year at Sheridan and in Minneapolis Public Schools, and before Sheridan I taught in Lima, Peru, South Minneapolis, Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico, and Richfield. I am an ethnomusicologist at heart, and consider myself fortunate to be able to explore the relationship of music, dance, social studies and culture with our "Stars" in MLC class.

My family (my husband Jaime, daughter Aida and son Roland) and I live in Northeast Minneapolis, speak Spanish at home, and enjoy being a part of everything our neighborhood and city have to offer: parks, libraries, concerts, festivals, etc.
