Welcome to the Vocal Music Program at South! We invite you on-board as a singer, as an audience member, or as a supportive parent, staff member, or community member. We look forward to meeting you at concerts and in the Choir Classroom in Room 100 (behind the Welcome Desk).
Laurie Meyers directs five choirs at South High School. Ms. Meyers grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and holds a Bachelor of Music Education from Drake University and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Nova Southeastern University. She has also studied Kodaly pedagogy at the University of St. Thomas. She has been teaching vocal music since 1998 and is passionate about giving all students opportunities to sing with healthy vocal technique and share the music within them.
Most of Ms. Meyers' teaching has taken place in various
schools in the Minneapolis Public Schools, but she has also taught with the Edison Project and at Eastview High School. She has also taught in Jordan as a Peace Corps Volunteer. She is grateful for her collaborative and talented teaching colleagues in the music department at South.
