Dear Notre Dame Families,

My name is Keith Guthrie and I am the music teacher at Notre Dame Academy.  This is my 8th year serving as a Director of Music in the Archdiocese of Newark and my first year teaching at Notre Dame.  I graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Music.

I view music education as an important way to support the mission of Notre Dame Academy.  In music class, students are able to encounter God through song (as St. Augustine said, "A person who sings prays twice!").  I also emphasize text analysis through a close reading of the lyrics we are working with.

I look forward to making music with your children this year!
