Meet The Music Teacher

Hello and welcome to the St. Thomas Music Page. I am so grateful to teach at St. Thomas. Please feel free to send me an email and introduce yourself. I will do my best to reply within 24 hours.

I am from Tolono, Illinois. I graduated from Unity in 2003 and studied music at Parkland College and Illinois State University. I play the saxophone, trumpet, and guitar and also sing for my church. Any letters I send home I will post here on the website as well. My schedule is below and you can contact me at cbillman@stthomasphilo.org. Thank you for supporting your child’s education!

 

Band

With another school year beginning, first year band students will move up to the advanced band and everyone in 4th Grade through 8th Grade is welcome to join beginning band. I will be at the school Open House, August 10, from 5:30-7:30pm for parents and students to decide which instrument to learn. The Music Shoppe will have a representative available to help secure an instrument. Links with further information below.
