Mr. Travis Michelson
Hello, my name is Travis Michelson and I am a music teacher at Willmar Middle School. I also teach choirs at Willmar Senior High School. This will be my 9th year teaching at the Middle School and my 12th year teaching in Willmar. My wife, Kari, is also a teacher; she teaches 4th Grade at Kennedy Elementary. We have a son, Emmett, who is seven years old and a daughter, Edyn, who is five years old. Now that you know a little about me, I'll look forward to getting to know each of my students.
Each choir member will be graded in the following way:
- Practice Skills – participation in class, attention to the director, classroom behavior, posture, have required materials for class (20%)
- Formative Skills – quizzes, solfege singing, vocal tests (30%)
- Summative Skills – concert participation, final tests (50%)
** Students receiving an “F” for ANY term will meet with an administrator to discuss further participation in choir.
