Mrs. Elisabeth Canuel - Orchestra & Mariachi Director

The 2022-2023 school year will be my 19th year as a music educator and 7th year as orchestra director here at Sabin. I feel extremely privileged and joyful to be able to teach the art of playing string instruments to my amazing middle schoolers every day! 

One of my great passions as a musician and teacher is exploring, listening to, and performing the music of different cultures from around the world. My most recent endeavor has been to start a mariachi club right here at Sabin, so that students may explore the rich traditions of Mexican folk music. Music throughout the world brings people of all different backgrounds together and enriches their lives. I strive to share that with my students. 

Outside of music, I love spending time outdoors running, riding my bike, and hiking with my husband and cocker spaniel, Banksy. Whenever I have the opportunity, I like to travel.
