Welcome to Mrs. Voigt's website!
I am so excited to be your teacher this year! I can't wait to meet and get to know each of you. I know firsthand how powerful and important music is in the educational experience, and I'm glad you've made it a part of yours. We will make some excellent music this year. Feel free to peruse the tabs to the left for more specific classroom information, or read on to learn more about me!
This is my fifth year teaching at West Linn High School and Athey Creek Middle School. Even in my first year, these schools weren't exactly new to me -- I am a West Linn native, and went to school K-12 in this district. In fact, I actually attended Athey Creek for middle school and graduated from West Linn! I went on to get my Bachelor of Music in Music Education and teaching license from the University of Oregon School of Music and Dance.
My primary instrument is the double bass, which I learned to play so I could be in jazz band, and ended up falling in love with playing in orchestra as well. I performed with the West Linn High School Orchestra, Symphonic Band, and Jazz Band, and the Metropolitan Youth Symphony Jazz Band in high school, and the University of Oregon Symphony Orchestra and Jazz Lab Band in college. I have studied every string instrument, and have at least experimented with nearly every other instrument there is...I'm partial to the ukulele and the bassoon!
In my free time, I like to hike, bake, rock climb, and get out and explore this wonderful world we live in!

Since I split my time between schools, email is the best way to get in contact with me. However, if you email or call, I'd be happy to set up an appointment to meet with you at either school! My office at the high school is M051, next to the Black Box. I have a work station at the middle school in the band room.
