Rebecca Dittmar earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Texas Lutheran University where she studied and performed as a pianist, vocalist, choral director, and trombonist. While at TLU, she had the opportunity to perform in a variety of solo performances, choir, band, orchestra to accompanying the University Choir on a national tour. Upon graduating, she acquired her Texas State teacher certification for Music K-12.
She has worked as a music educator since 2004 when she began teaching in public schools in west Austin, before moving to Pflugerville in 2009. Prior to moving, she took her Orff Schulwerk Level I course from Southern Methodist University under the direction of national presenter Julie Scott, and instructors including Paul Cribari, which fueled her interest in the Orff Philosophy of music education and encouraged her involvement helping establish the local Capital Area Orff Chapter.
Rebecca taught in Pflugerville ISD for 5 years, where she conducted a children’s choir, multiple choral and instrument stage performances, and recorder program, before choosing to stay home with her 2 young boys.
Wanting to continue teaching, she attended a teacher training with Lynn Kleiner, an internationally recognized leader in music education, director and CEO of Music Rhapsody, and author of several award winning Early Childhood music education books. This program is based on the philosophy of Carl Orff and the American Orff Schulwerk Association that children learn best experiencing musical elements through singing, chanting, dancing, playing and creativity, even at very young ages!
Rebecca is excited to begin a new chapter of teaching by bringing this program to the Pflugerville, Round Rock area. Come join us for our musical play time!
