Mr. Steven Ruth

Welcome to my webpage!

I believe that music is a valuable part of a child's education and strive to cultivate a love for music in our students here at Magnolia! As an active musician, I value teaching students to sing and play instruments skillfully. Our younger grades enjoy exploring rhythm and barred instruments such as the drums and xylophones. Older students learn to play the ukulele and recorder. All students enjoy a variety of movement, thinking and musical games and activities as well as folk dances. It is an honor to have the opportunity to teach your child! If you have any questions, please contact me at

My conference time is 11:20-12:05pm.


At Magnolia, students are learning to "Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectiful".


Our rules for music class are:

1. Follow Directions

2. Raise Your Hand To Speak

3. Sit Correctly In Your Spot

4. Be Nice To Everyone
