• Welcome to the Knapp Music Room!
      
    As we ease back into our regular music routine, we
    still need to be mindful of the conditions that the
    pandemic has brought on our world and further, 
    into our music classroom. We still have many
    challenges ahead as we begin the new year,
    but hopefully we will be able to return to some
    sort of normalcy as the year progresses. That
    being said, I have many things planned for our
    Knapp Knights musicians for the 2021-2022

    Hello!  I'm Stephen Chambers, the Music Specialist
    at Knapp Elementary!  I hold Bachelor's and
    Master's Degrees from Indiana University,
    specializing in Instrumental, Choral, and
    General Music.  I pride myself on my students
    abilities in vocal production and singing on pitch,
    early music theory, and an all-round knowledge of
