My name is Annie Chilcote, and I am the full time music teacher here at AES! I love working with my favorite musicians everyday in music class where we can sing, dance, play, and create!
I am originally from southwestern Pennsylvania. I got my Bachelor's of Music in Music Education from West Virginia University. In college, I studied the bassoon and played in several different ensembles. I was also in the Pride of West Virginia: The Mountaineer Marching Band for four years, and I played the mellophone. We got to travel to and perform in so many cool places.
I also have my MAED in Curriculum and Instruction from Virginia Tech and completed three levels of Orff Schulwerk teaching certification at the Eastman School of Music.
I live in Christiansburg with my husband, Glen, who teaches music at Kipps Elementary in Blacksburg. We have a son, Eli, and a dog named Carl.
