Macik, Cathy

Welcome to General Music

 I Love Music

Hello, my name is Miss Macik. I have the honor of teaching all the students at Newman Elementary. Students are taught good vocal techniques, music theory, how to read music and how to write it. They will learn how to play various percussion instruments and third, fourth, and fifth grade students learn how to play recorders. For the last few years, Newman fifth graders have had the opportunity to play their recorders and sing with the El Paso Symphony. This is made possible through a grant called the “Link Up Program” sponsored by Carnegie Hall in New York. Students learn music, games, languages, and more from around the world. Third, fourth, and fifth grade students may join the choir which meets after school. We perform at Newman but also perform at various places throughout El Paso.


I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from the University of Texas at El Paso. I am certified in the state of Texas to teach music – all levels and I am elementary certified to teach up to 8th grade. I have been a regular classroom teacher and music teacher at Wainwright Elementary, Canyon Hills Middle School, and Newman Elementary. I have also worked with church choirs, children and adults.
