Page 2, Cloverdale Reveille, Dec. 4, 1991 CHS welcomes new music teacher Cloverdale School District's new music teacher, Ken Mackie, has completed his first week on the job teaching Washington and Cloverdale High students. Mackie, 37-years-old, with a Bachelor's in Music from Stanis- laus State University in Turlock has taught high school and kin- dergarten through eighth grade students and high school stu- dents for Merced Junior College part-time. He is teaching students music at Washington School and the High School. After finishing his first week with the kids, Mackie said, "Their training is excellent. Their discipline is excellent. Their ability, their drive is superb. They're wonderful. I could con- tinue to use adjectives--they are wonderful." He hopes to have a High School band of at least 100 students Mackie is teaching 16 students at CHS and 29 at Washington.. He said, "I hope previous instru- mentalists will come back." He hopes to have a high school band of at least 100 students and said, "That will be in a few years. Based on what I see in the 5th and 6th grade--it will be there." A few of the goals Mackie has for Cloverdale are, "to give them the best. They deserve it." He continued, "The junior high band will play as well as most high school bands and the high school will play as well as most college bands." He plans on turning Clover- dale into a, "model program for the rest of the state." Mackie said he wants other districts to, "look at Cloverdale and see why it's working. It's going to be the kids that pull it off." Mackie said music is impor- tant to kids because, "Music teaches the whole person. Music is not just one discipline it is every discipline in one. Music deals in the language of emotion and teaches kids how to feel." He remembered, "When I was yea high, I would be conducting to the stereo at home." Mackie first became interested in teach- ing music, "under the excellent conductor Ron Johnson. He taught us to go past the written page and perform the music and not just the notes."
