Ms. Marie Karbacka
Hello, everyone! My name is Ms Karbacka and I am the general music and chorus teacher at Washington Middle School. This is my fourth year teaching in the public school system and I am very excited to start the school year with all of you! I received my masters degree from the State University of New York at Fredonia with a concentration in Music Education - Voice. I received a bachelors degree in Music Performance - Voice and a post baccalaureate degree in Music Education from Mercyhurst University. I grew up in Jamestown, NY and went to C. C. Ring Elementary School, Washington Middle School and Jamestown High School. Throughout my time in the Jamestown Public Schools, I participated in the music program. I am a singer (soprano), and I play violin and French horn. I love performing, too! I have been in many productions of musicals and operas throughout my high school and college career.
I cannot wait to start the school year with you all and begin making music together!
