I am so excited to be joining the family and program here at Whittier High School! I feel very lucky to be welcomed into a program full of such dedicated and caring students, parents, and surrounding community. Apart from being a music teacher and having a passion for education and all things music, I am an animal lover, sugar addict, active performer, adventurer, Disney/Marvel/Star Wars devotee, baseball fan, and artist. I have an open-door policy, so please feel free to visit, call, email me anytime. What I feel is most important, above teaching students music, is ensuring they have a positive, welcoming and meaningful experience, and everything I do in this program will be striving to provide that for the Whittier students.
About Ms. Boone
Ms. Boone is a recent graduate of UCLA, where she studied music education and French Horn at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music. While in college, she was involved even more music outside of her major. She was an active member of the UCLA Bruin Marching Band where she served as Drum Major for 3 of her 4 years and served as the editor and producer of 6 professional virtual ensemble videos during distance learning. She was also a member of YOUTHphonics, a community service-based a capella group on campus that devotes their time every week to teaching music, theory, and singing to a local high school that lost their choir program.
While growing up in a music-loving family, Ms. Boone always knew music was an important aspect of her life. She has been dancing since the age of 2, and began learning instruments and joining choir during elementary school. As if that wasn't enough, Ms. Boone found herself in downtown Fresno 5 nights a week for 5 years as a performer in the community dinner theater. As she progressed through middle and high school, she continued to be just as involved, if not more in music as a part of the drama program, choir, and 5 band ensembles.
With her passion for the marching arts, Ms. Boone marched with RCC Indoor Percussion in 2019, Mandarins Drum and Bugle Corps in 2017 and 2018, and the Blue Devils for their 2019 Championship season through the summer of 2021.
