Music Program

Hacienda’s Music Program is known as a “pull out” program. All students, K through 5th grade get to enjoy attending music class every week.

NEW for 2019! Music Performance Videos can be purchased, viewed and downloaded online. The Konstella Video Sale (coming soon) gets you a password and download link after collecting a donation for the HIPS funded Music program.

Kinder: one half hour weekly
Grades 1 – 5: one hour weekly

Students are privileged to have a music classroom with over 100 instruments from all over the world! What makes Hacienda’s music program so unique? It is 100% supported by fundraising from H.I.P.S., Hacienda Involved Parents and Staff.

We are very pleased to have Ms. Monica Ulrich, Ms. Daniele Thompson, and Mrs. Samantha Abouav teaching our music program. They follow in the footsteps of our most notable music teachers, Ms. Kathy Haydel (1985-2004) and Mrs. Amy Hahner (2004-2012).

Ms. Ulrich began teaching in the Hacienda Music Program in 2011. She has a professional clear credential as well as a supplementary credential to teach music with a music minor. She taught in the Morgan Hill Unified School District for 8 years before coming to San Jose Unified School District. Ms. Daniele Thompson has joined Ms. Ulrich from the Rhythm and Moves Program.

The Music Program at Hacienda is based on the philosophy that music, as well as the other arts, enhances a special part of student’s development. Through various music activities, they are able to express their own creativity and to also experience self-esteem, satisfaction, accomplishment,  and most of all, joy.
