Hello! My name is Mrs. Hudson and I am the music teacher here at Willett Elementary School. I have been a music teacher for 17 years! I have a Bachelor of Music from The Boston Conservatory and a Master of Music from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. To become a music teacher, I learned to play many instruments from the cello to the trumpet, from the flute to the timpani drums. It was a lot of work but tons of fun! My main instrument is the harpsichord. Below is a picture of my double manual harpsichord. It has two keyboards and is a copy of a harpsichord in the Smithsonian Museum. I call it Big Blue and I love its full, dark but sparkly sound!
I am also building a smaller harpsichord with one keyboard. It is almost done!
I love to spend time with my family. Mr. Hudson and I like to kayak, watch movies and enjoy music. He also plays trombone. We have three cats, named Sampson, Sophie and Sadie, plus a dog, named Henry. Sophie likes to sing along when I play harpsichord. Sampson likes to listen while Sadie always wants to sit in my lap. They are also big snuggle bugs!
