Hello! My name is Darby Teander and I'm the new Music Teacher at Smith. I'm excited to be bringing music to your school community this year. I am originally from Raleigh, NC and earned my degree at Appalachian State University. My primary instrument is the Alto Saxophone, and I like to play classical saxophone music (not jazz, like you might think!). In my free time, I like to go on long road bike rides. You'll probably catch me commuting to/from school on my bike! I believe music is an integral part to educating the whole child and can't wait to utilize my passion to help your student grow.
