Ms. Melanie Altman

Ms. Altman has taught for eight years as the assistant Choir director at Murphy and will take over as head Choir mama to start her 9th year of teaching! Born in Washington, DC, Ms. Altman also spent part of her life in New Orleans, where she joined choir in sixth grade and began studying private voice. Upon graduation from high school in Texas, she attended Sam Houston State University (Go Bearkats!) and graduated with a Bachelor of Music Education. Aside from teaching choir and laughing with her students every day, Ms. Altman sings soprano two with the Plano Civic Chorus and enjoys performing as a chorister multiple times throughout the year. Ms. Altman loves to spend time outside of school cheering on her favorite football teams with her family, her two fluffy cats, and her friends. Her favorite parts of her job as an MMS Choir director are getting to know her students, being a goofy Choir Mama, and stretching before singing! :)
