Welcome to the Music Room

Hello! My name is Ned Worrell. I teach Music at Waite Park.
I have been teaching at Waite Park since 2000, and in the Minneapolis Public Schools for over 30 years. Before teaching here, I taught at Burroughs, Lake Harriet, Jefferson, Lincoln, and Wilder Elementary Schools. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from the University of Minnesota in 1980, and my Master's in 1988, also from the U of M.
I believe that the arts are an important part of the education of all students. Not only do they reinforce reading and math instruction, they also provide important enrichment to a basic education. The arts reach all students, regardless of learning strengths, and allow children an avenue for self-expression.
