Quaver - I will be putting assignments/activities here for kids to do if they choose. This is optional but will provide them with some music activites in addition to what is on the Specials' choice card that has been emailed out.
Quaver's Marvelous World of Music is our current district adopted music curriculum. There is an online component. 2nd-4th grade students have already been shown how to do this and instructions are in the files listed below for those in Kindergarten and 1st grade or those that need a refresher. I made a tutorial video to show you how to log in and how to open assignments and change songs or activities in the assignment. Quaver Login Tutorial Video.
Everyone should be set up into the approriate class but if you get this screen click no and enter the appropriate class code (found in the Quaver Class Codes document in the file library below).
Please make sure to log into the online textbook portion of the Pearland ISD website and not the Quaver Music website. This login only works through the pearlandisd.org online textbook login portal.

I grew up in Bridge City, Texas and graduated from Bridge City High School in 1991. I graduated from McNeese State University in 1997 with a bachelor’s degree in Music Performance with a concentration in jazz and commercial music. In 2011, I graduated from the University of Phoenix with a Master’s of Arts Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a computer education specialization.
I began taking piano lessons in Kindergarten and continued throughout elementary school. I joined band in 6th grade as a percussionist and started playing the bass guitar in 7th grade. Bass became my main instrument but I still occasionally play percussion when the need arises. I also play the string bass, guitar, ukulele, and recorder. I have played in several rock and pop bands as well as jazz groups and the Lake Charles Symphony.
This is my 18th year at Lawhon. Prior to teaching at Lawhon, I taught in Garland ISD at Stephens Elementary and Rowlett Elementary for three years. I also taught in Calcasieu Parish in Louisiana at Vinton Elementary and Kaufman Elementary before moving back to Texas.
I have 2 boys. Tab is 25 and is the assitant band director at Lamar High School in Houston ISD. Kip is 17 and currently attends Turner High School and is a member of the Pearland High School Band.
