Emily Kwas

Music and English

“It’s so beautiful seeing children get excited about sharing with each other through the universal language of music.”

Emily brings many gifts to the St. Ambrose classroom! Emily is a graduate of UW-Madison with a bachelor’s degree in Music Education with a vocal emphasis. During her undergraduate years, she was both a participant in and then director of the choir during weekly candelight Masses at St. Paul’s. A private piano and voice teacher through the UW, Emily has worked with students with a wide range of musical abilities. Getting to know her students, learning about them through their reactions to music, and seeing them grow and help each other are among her favorite parts of the job.

In her free time, Emily enjoys writing, singing at Mass, spending time with friends, and cooking.
