Welcome to Music!


My name is Ms. Rachel ErpeldingI am looking forward to getting to know all of you and to begin a fantastic year in band and choir! I will also be teaching 1st-5th Grade General Music.


First I am going to start by telling you a little about myself! I graduated from Southwest Minnesota state in Marshall, MN where I studied Music Education.  I taught 5-12 Instrumental Music in Avon, SD, Pre K-12th Band and Vocal in White Lake, SD, and Pre-K-12th Band and Vocal in Plankinton, SD.  I grew up around Sioux Falls with my two siblings.  I have three nephews and one niece.  And just as of January, have a great nephew. Fun Fact about me is that I have been riding horses since I was in Junior High and compete in Huntseat and Dressage. 


I am extremely excited to start this year with you. My goal is for us all to experience music together but have fun doing it!  We will have so much time to get to know each other and do not be afraid to ask questions!
