Hi! My name is Nikki Blacketer, and I am the Hickey Music Teacher!  

In music, students will first learn to use the instrument in their bodies - their voice!  We will learn music literacy through games, dances, reading, writing, and playing instruments. 

Here are some events to look forward to this year in music: 

  • All 4th grade students - Veteran’s Day music program: Thursday evening, November 10 at 6 pm (Students arrive at 5:45 pm).  Wear red, white, and/or blue!
  • All 2nd grade students – Storybook music program: Thursday evening, March 23.  More information will come home in February and March.
  • 4th and 5th grade Hickey Choir meets every Thursday and will have 2 evening concerts this school year: Thursday, December 8 and Thursday, March 2.  See the full choir schedule here:

A little about me: 

I am a flute player, and I also love to play the ukulele and to sing.  I grew up in Allen then went to college at Texas Tech University where I completed my Bachelor’s degrees in music education and in flute performance.  I have a daughter and three dogs.  I love to run and read.  I am certified in the Kodály-method of teaching music and firmly believe Zoltan Kodály when he said, “With music, one’s whole future life is brightened. This is such a treasure in life that it helps us over many troubles and difficulties. Music is nourishment, a comforting elixir. Music multiplies all that is beautiful and of value in life.”
