Southeastern District Representative
My name is Amy Baker; I have degrees from UW-Green Bay and UW-Milwaukee. I have taught choir and general music at Oak Creek East Middle School for 15 years, and I have been teaching for 21 years total. I love working in the Oak Creek-Franklin district because the students truly love to sing, and my music colleagues are amazing. I am told I am a great communicator and am very organized. In addition to being the only choir director at my school, I’ve also served as a yearbook club advisor and, this year, I started an extra-curricular a cappella group for my 7th and 8th graders.
Jonathan Brooks has been an active member of the Wisconsin choral community for the past 24 years. He is currently the choir director at Germantown High School in Germantown, Wisconsin. Jonathan has also served as choir director at New Berlin Eisenhower High School, Portage High School, and Marion High School, as well as George Washington High School and The Girard Academic Music Program, both in the city of Philadelphia. Jonathan’s choirs have been active collaborators with ensembles throughout Wisconsin, and nationally. They have performed with The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, The New England Symphony at Carnegie Hall, Army Voices in Alexandria, VA, and with Milwaukee’s Chant Claire Chamber Choir. This spring, the Germantown choirs are excited to collaborate with Zachary Durlam and the UW-Milwaukee Choirs. Jonathan has served as guest clinician, most recently with the Association of Wisconsin Area Kodaly Educators (AWAKE), and he currently serves as Board President of Chant Claire Chamber Choir. Jonathan is a frequent participant in WCDA and WSMA initiatives, including The CMP project, Singing in Wisconsin, and Refresh!
