Hello!  My name is Katie Van Eck and I am your student's music teacher.  This is my ninth year at Indian Grove School.  Before working at IG, I taught K-8 music for two years in Fisher, IL.  I have a Bachelors in Music Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Masters in Educational Leadership from Concordia University.


Indian Grove students have at least 60 minutes of music per week (30 minutes for Kindergarten).  The music curriculum in District 26 aligns with the brand-new Illinois Arts Learning Standards in which students learn to create, perform, respond, and connect to music.  

Students in grades 3-5 may join the Indian Grove Chorus, which meets on Tuesdays after school (IG Dancers and Rhythm Ensemble) and Wed/Fri mornings before school (IG Singers).  For more information, please email Ms. Van Eck.
