Hello, my name is

Natalie Gibbs.

I am the music teacher at Belview.  I see all of our students twice a week for music class, and see many of them after school as well for Ukulele Club, Broadway Bees, and Honeycomb Choir.

I committed to graduate from John S. Battle High School in Bristol, VA, class of 1999.
I earned my Bachelor of Arts in music and English from Virginia Tech (go Hokies!) and finished my Master of Arts in music from Radford University in 2014.  

I love teaching at Belview because it is such a supportive community, and everyone loves to learn and share.  

Follow this link to a Google Doc of fun websites designed for creating your own music.  They are free and accessible from home or school.  Take a look!

YouTube INCLUDES ADS THAT PLAY AUTOMATICALLY BEFORE MANY VIDEOS.  We do not choose these ads and do not have a way to monitor their content or remove them from the videos.  The videos are still very helpful for the purposes of practicing and sharing music at home.  Please supervise children when they watch videos online and be prepared to mute any ads you wish. 

Honeycomb Choir Practice Playlist
Includes Twaingia/Jambo, Shalom Chaverim, Minka, Perfect Winter Day, and Let There Be Peace on Earth.  2nd graders should have paper copies of the music to use as needed.  3rd-5th graders can find the music in their Google Classrooms or our shared Google Drive folder.  

Breakfast with Santa Info:
Breakfast with Santa is at Belview on Saturday, December 9.  It begins at 8:30.  We perform at 9:00 and should be done by 9:45 or earlier.  Choir students will meet with Mrs. Gibbs in the music room at 8:30 to warm-up and line-up.  Ukulele students (who are not also in choir) will meet with Mrs. Preston on the risers.  Instruments should be tuned and in place for you when you arrive.  Choir will perform first, then Ukulele Club.  

We will wear our new music shirts for this performance (they will be here on Monday, December 4th).  Please wear black pants or jeans and safe riser shoes: no high heels, flip-flops, or sandals.  Ukulele students may wear seasonal hats if they like.  Choir students with long hair should have hair pulled back away from their faces.

Thank you!
