Janna DuRard

Welcome, Olle Middle School students and parents to the Olle Choir Department!

I am proud to have been teaching in the Alief ISD for over 13 years, 10 of those at Olle MS.  While I have primarily taught choir, I have also enjoyed teaching piano classes, having taught private piano and voice for over 30 years.  I am a member of the Texas Music Educators Association and adjudicate for many piano competitions and festivals.

Teaching music, and especially singing, is my passion, and my goal is to help students develop their musical talents and abilities.  Structure and unconditional support of each student's efforts are vital to their development, and helping them achieve their goals is a life-long privilege and joy.
