Greetings! My name is Ms. Rachel Erpelding and I am looking forward to getting to know all of you and to begin a fantastic year in band! I will also be teaching 5th and 6th 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 in South Dakota and in Minnesota.  I have taught everything from Pre-School General Music to 12th Grade Band and Choir.  I grew up around Sioux Falls with my two siblings.  I have three nephews, one niece and one 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!
