Ms. Carin Lerma - 1st through 4th Grade Vocal Music

A little bit about me…


My Name is Carin Lerma (pronounced: Karen). This is currently my 2nd year of teaching.  I have a Bachelor’s in Music Education with an instrumental emphasis from Chapman University. I specialize in string instruments, but have a strong background in voice and piano from years of participation with my church’s worship team, where I do vocal coaching with the choir. Last year I was at Los Alamitos Elementary where I taught general music and directed the choir. I have a passion for music and I want to instill that in all my students. My goal as a music educator is to create an environment where my students feel safe to make music no matter their level of ability. I want them to enjoy themselves, while learning the music fundamentals that will help them succeed in either 5th grade choir, 5th grade instrumental music and beyond.


On a personal note, I grew up in Long Beach, California. This is where I met my husband of 10 years, Rafael. We now have two beautiful boys Kael and Jax. Aside from music, I also enjoy cooking and spending time with my family outdoors.


Musically yours,

Carin Lerma
