Vivian Cortés

         Welcome to Music Class

 Hello ! My name is Vivian Cortés, I am the music teacher. I'm from Puerto Rico, United States. I moved to North Carolina in December 1999 along with my husband Martin and my two kids Martin Andrés and Viviana María. I have been working at  Shady Brook and Fred L Wilson since 2002. I love my profession and teaching music to children and playing music have always been my passions. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year and music programs for students and parents.

     College Attended/ Degrees Earned

        I graduated from the Conservatory of Music in Puerto Rico where I received a bachelor degree in Piano Performance and  Music Education.

      Educational Philosophy / Vision

                   The opportunity to learn about the arts and to perform as artists is an essential part of a well-rounded curriculum and complete education. The arts help students explore realities, relationships and ideas that cannot be conveyed simply in words or numbers. And the arts engender innovative problem solving that students can apply to other academic disciplines while at the same time, provide experience working as a team.
