Hello, my name is Arthur McEvoy and I am the music teacher at McElwain. I was born and raised in Colorado Springs and earned a bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. I am beyond excited to get to know the students at McElwain this spring as we make music together! I love singing and playing a variety of instruments, and have been involved in both school and professional choirs and bands since I was an elementary schooler! I recently got marrried, and my wife is a third grade teacher in Thornton. We have loved getting to know the North Denver area these last few months! I love to travel and learn about new languages and cultures and have spent time visiting several other countries including a two-month stay in India two summers ago. I believe that music has a unique power to draw people together and I want the music program at McElwain to reflect the incredible diversity and creativity of the students, staff, and family. I hope to come to know all of the McElwain students and families in the coming months, and want you all to know that my door is always open to you. Music is made special by the wonderful minds of your students, and I will seek to provide the fullest experience possible for them.
Thank you for welcoming me into this community
