Mrs. Kristina Rizzo

My name is Mrs. Kristina Rizzo. 2018- 2019 is my 30th year teaching in the Arlington Central School District. I have taught instrumental and vocal music in many of the Arlington schools and I am currently the orchestra director at Union Vale Middle School. This year I will be teaching grades 6 and 8 orchestra. My philsophy of music education is to give every child the opportunity to make music and grow in their skills, knowledge, and enjoyment of performing and engage in music learning, performance and enrichment. I possess a Bachelor of Music Degree from SUNY Potsdam, Crane School of Music and a Master of Science from Western Connecticut State University. Continuing studies have included professional development through workshops, conferences, teaching at summer festivals, and musical enrichment through performance in the Newburgh Symphony, Woodstock Orchestra, and the Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra.
