Apison Elementary Music Page!!!! 

Welcome to the Apison Elementary Music Page. My Name is Lindsey Pratt Pope, the full time Music Teacher at Apison. My goal as Music Teacher is to provide the students at Apison with the highest level of music experience that they can achieve. To expose them to all forms of music and to develop an understanding and respect for the arts.
