One Class at a Time: Russell Elementary

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Russell Elementary Music Teacher Kristin Zschaechner is hoping her students can learn the sounds of music with hands-on learning.

Zschaechner is this week’s winner of KPAX-TV and Republic Services One Class at a Time grant. 

KPAX-TV General Manager Bob Hermes presented Zschaechner with a $250 check to help purchase new Ukulele’s for her students.

She says by incorporating the new instruments her students will have increased instruction time.

This year, Zschaechner started the Ukulele class and is helping the kids jam along to modern music they can relate to. 

“You can strum a long to a lot of famous songs that you already know from the radio," she said. "Lots of songs that are popular with the kids. It brings music to life a little more and makes the music classroom a little bit more interactive and relatable to the outside."
