Melissa Graff

     Hello! My name is Melissa Graff and I am the elementary and vocal music teacher in the Alma Area School District.  I teach all the elementary music classes, junior high and senior high choirs, and I also direct the elementary spring musical.  In addition, I travel to Pepin Area School District and teach the previously mentioned classes.  Whew!

     I studied music education at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse.  While in college, I participated in almost every performance group in the music department, including University Singers and the Marching Chiefs (now known as the Screaming Eagles - SEMB).  I also worked in the Annett Recital Hall as the the Stage Manager for 1 year and then as the House Manager for 3 years, where I was responsible for the production of many recitals, lectures, concerts and other various performances.

     I successfully completed my Bachelor of Science degree program in December of 1990.  I am currently licensed in the state of Wisconsin and have been teaching for over 29 years.  I have taken/participated in numerous lectures, workshops, classes, and seminars.   I continue to seek out professional development opportunities in the fields of music and technology.  I enjoy learning new methodologies and techniques to apply in my classrooms.

     During the summer months, you may find me playing the steel pan with the Coulee Region Steel Band or  participating in various summer parades with the Oktoberfest Grenadier Corps.  If I am not donning my dirndl or playing lead pan, I may be playing my piccolo with the UW-L Alumni Band.

     I live in a small town north of La Crosse where my husband, also a teacher in Alma, and I are almost empty nesters.  When I am not teaching, I enjoy golfing, bowling, scrapbooking, and spending time with friends and family.

     If I can be of any assistance to you or answer a question about our music program here in Alma, please feel free to contact me using the email link below.  Thanks for reading my page - GO EAGLES!
