Welcome to Orchestra!
My name is Vanessa Cedillos and this is my 4th year teaching 5th grade orchestra at Polk and Lundy. I have been teaching Elementary Orchestra for over 8 years. As a violinist, I perform with the El Paso Symphony Orchestra, the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra, the El Paso Opera Orchestra and many more ensembles throughout the area. I graduated from UTEP with a Bachelor's in Music Education and received my Master's in Violin Performance from the Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA. Aside from teaching and performing I love to travel. In 2012, I combined both of my passions for music and traveling and did a tour throughout South America for 6.5 months performing violin duets for children with my sister in 10 different countries.
My goal in our orchestra class is to see my students learn, grow and succeed through music. I look forward to a wonderful year with my students!
