Hastings: Bouncing to the Beat

Music teacher Kristin Lukow believes that music can be a powerful tool to help build self esteem in elementary schools students.

Mrs. Lukow travels among three Hastings, NE elementary schools and brings her non-traditional approach to the classroom – and sometimes out of the classroom. Ms. Lukow believes music is at the core of who we are; it helps our brains connect and grow. She teaches fourteen K-6 classes a day and remains focused on the gift of music that she hopes her students never stop discovering.

There is one lesson that carries through each of her classes, and that’s that nobody is bad at music. Everyone is just different. Watch Bouncing To The Beat to learn more!
