Portrait of Keely Blaikner, Music Teacher at the High School

Keely Blaikner
Music Teacher
Symphony Orchestra & Chamber Strings 
Orchestra Director
Warwick Valley High School

“When I witness and hear a student ‘get it’ – you know, that breakthrough moment of understanding, that’s what I find most rewarding about teaching. Whether it’s about a concept related to playing a music instrument, performing a certain piece of music, or something they struggled with, that moment when they light up and realize they CAN do it, and have done it, it’s amazing to witness. As a music teacher, not only do I see that moment, but I hear that moment as well. I can hear their improvement, and it’s a wonderful experience!”

Mrs. Blaikner has taught at WVCSD for 21 years.
