Emily Tratar


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

St. Ambrose students will have the privilege of learning music again this year from Emily Tratar. Emily is currently attending UW-Madison, pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Music Education with a vocal emphasis. A private piano and voice teacher through the UW, Emily has worked with students with a wide range of musical ability. 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.

Emily also teaches music at St. James. She is involved at the St. Paul’s University Catholic Center and Badger Catholic. She was also the former director and a current participant of the candlelight Masses at St. Paul’s. 

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