About Ms. Hecht
Welcome to Elementary Strings!
I teach 4th and 5th grade strings at BV, FGL, and FWS.
This is my fifth year teaching here at Hendrick Hudson, and my tenth year teaching overall. I previously taught high school orchestra and music theory in Ithaca, NY and directed the string program grades 5-12 in Ilion, NY. I'm originally from Poughkeepsie and couldn't be happier to be back in the Hudson Valley. I have many new and exciting things in store for our string program this year and can't wait to share them with all of you.
I received both my Master of Music and Bachelor of Music degrees in music education from Ithaca College. I am a member of the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA), the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), Westchester County School Music Association (WCSMA), and the American String Teachers Association (ASTA). My primary instrument is violin. When I'm not at school, you might find me playing in an orchestra or fiddling at a jam session!
