    Ariel Zink

    Music Specialist


    Welcome to Choir and World Music Drumming!

    My name is Ariel Zink. I'm new to Maplewood Middle this year and excited to be here! 

    I grew up in Austin, MN and went on to study voice and choral conducting at Luther College in Decorah, IA. Upon graduating, I began directing choirs in and outside the classroom. For the past 7 years, I have had the pleasure of working with elementary on up through adult choirs. In the choir room, we strive to build a culture of teamwork, humility, encouragement, and excellence. We focus on becoming smart musicians who are able to create and participate in music both individually and as an ensemble. 
    I believe each student has been given a gift and I'm here to help them steward it to the best of their ability. 
    I look forward to working with these kids each day and can't wait to share their hard work with Maplewood family and friends at our Winter and Spring concerts. 
    Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
