Caity Headshot.jpg

​Caitlin Hoffert- Caitlin is a graduate of West Chester University where she earned a bachelor's degree in music education with a concentration in voice and minors in jazz studies and music history. She also recently earned her masters in music education at Temple University. Eventually, she aspires to earn her doctorate in order to be able to teach music education at the collegiate level.

Currently, Caitlin teaches K-5 music, choir, and drama club at Rocky Mountain Elementary School

in Westminster, CO, and this year is her sixth year of teaching classroom music.

 

Caity has taught voice, piano, guitar, and ukulele lessons both in person and via Zoom for 8 years, making connections with students and preparing them for recitals, auditions, and solo gigs. In addition, Caitlin has taught toddler and baby music classes through Gymboree: Play & Music of Wilmington, DE, and Tot Rock! of West Chester, PA, where she used music as a means of helping students develop their fine motor skills, social skills, cognitive functions, and early musicianship.

As a performer, Caitlin identifies as a classical singer, jazz singer, and singer-songwriter. As a solo artist, she accompanies herself on piano, guitar, and ukulele in a variety of genres. During her career at WCU, she was the featured vocalist for the Criterions Jazz Ensemble and a member of the top choral ensemble, Concert Choir. In addition, she worked as the alto choral scholar at Immanuel Highlands Episcopal Church of Wilmington, DE, for 2 years.

 

However, a passion that she holds a bit nearer and dearer to her heart is teaching. Caitlin believes that music can sculpt an individual, both intellectually and emotionally, when practiced at any age. As an educator, she hopes to guide her students in this pursuit.
