Welcome to Mrs. Jurgensen's Music Room! I am so excited that you virtually came to visit! My name is Megan Jurgensen and I am the K-5 General Music at Long Beach Elementary as well a music teacher Lakewood Creek Elementary. I have been teaching with Oswego Community Unit School Distrct since the Spring 2014, getting my start at Boulder Hill Elementary and then transferring to Long Beach Elementary School in 2017. I received my Elementary Education Degree from Aurora University back in 2013, then later, earned my certification to teach music.
Music has been a driving force in my life and I am absolutely thrilled that I get the opportunity to share my passion for all things music with the wonderful students at my schools! My music classroom covers everything from music history, influential composers and musical artists, theory, instruments and current events.
Feel free to check out the You Gotta See This and the You Gotta Try This pages for fun activities that you can try at home! My family and I also included some fun sing along videos for you to try if you would like to exercise your vocal muscles.
If you have any questions, comments or would like to share some fun music materials with us, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
