Welcome to the AES music site! My name is Mrs. Drayton and I am the music teacher at Altoona Elementary School! In my classroom your child will sing, play instruments, play games, dance, and learn how to read and write music! I look forward to helping your child become tuneful (I can sing in tune), beatful (I can keep a steady beat) and artful (I can show/use expression in music).
