My name is Brenda Kulmala and I will be your child's General Music teacher at Marlboro Elementary this year. You may also see me working with students throughout the day as a Title 1 Tutor as well. I am SO excited to join the team at Marlboro and to meet all of my amazing students! I graduated from the University of Akron in 2019 with a bachelor’s degree in music education, and went on to serve as a general substitute teacher for Field, Mogadore and Springfield school districts. I had the opportunity to serve as a long term general music substitute at OH Somers Elementary in the spring of 2020 as well.
I believe that music is for everyone; that ALL students can perform at a high level in a musical setting and it is my daily goal to support students in this endeavor. My favorite concepts to teach include musical literacy, rhythm and instrument families.
