Dauphinais, Maegan (Music)

Mrs. Dauphinais


Welcome to music! 
My name is Maegan Dauphinais (Daw-fin-ay)
and I am proud to be the Music Education teacher here at WBES!

My husband, Nick, and I are both musicians and are from way up north in New Hampshire. We moved to North Carolina for a change of pace, and so he could pursue performing Bluegrass full-time. In June of 2018 we welcomed a daughter into our family, Charlotte Anne, and she's already stolen our hearts completely - including our dog, Baelfire's!

I received my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education at the University of New Hampshire, and completed a year of graduate school studying orchestral conducting and music education. My passion is playing instruments, so you will hear a lot from your kids about the instruments we are learning to play!

We came to North Carolina for its rich musical tradition, and it is my ultimate goal that every child here at Best Buncombe de
velops the basic skills necessary to participate in that tradition. Using primarily the Orff and Kodaly pedagogies we learn to read music starting in Kindergarten, sing, play pitched and unpitched percussion, learn chords to accompany songs on ukuleles, and develop basic playing technique on violins as well as a variety of other instruments. As you can see, we work hard in music class, and the harder we work the more fun we have!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's music education, please feel free to contact me here at school!

Looking forward to another great year!
