Welcome to Mrs. Dose's Page
Welcome to all things music at AWV! I teach K-12 vocal and instrumental music. K-5 graders have general/vocal music two days each week. 5th graders also have band three days a week. Middle school band and choir meet 1st hour everyday (band meets Monday, Wednesday, Friday and choir Tuesday/Thursday). High school band and choir meet at the end of the day.
I began teaching at AWV in 2016. I started out my teaching career in St. Louis teaching general music. I have my BA in Music from Buena Vista University.
Outside of school, I am mom to 4 busy kids and wife to Ben. I am one of the organists at Zion Lutheran Church in Arcadia. I play French horn in All-Strings Attached Symphony in Carroll.
Instrumental and vocal music students are busy year round. We do 2 concerts each year for both the elementary and middle/high school. The middle school and high school students have opportunities throughout the year to participate in various honor ensembles including: All-State, NWIBA JH Honor Band, NWIBA HS Honor Band, RVC HS Choir Festival, RVC MS and HS Honor Band, Karl King Honor Band, Wayne State Honor Choir, and Meistersinger Honor Band.
