    purple line
    My Name is R. Scott Harnisch and I am the music educator at Kyrene del Norte and Kyrene de la Estrella.   This is my 27year in Kyrene and my 30 year as an educator.
    I am originally from Washington State and received my undergraduate degrees in Music Performance and Education from Central Washington University.  I came to Arizona in 1988 and completed my Masters in Music at Arizona State University.  My doctoral studies in music and special education has taken place at Oklahoma University, Oklahoma City University and Northern Arizona University.
    After completing my studies, I spent many years pursuing a performance career and touring throughout the country in professional musical theater companies.  It was a very exciting time in my life and one that allowed me a great deal of insight to pass on to my future students.
    I have 2 step children, Katie and Jeff, 4 god children, Derek, Monica, Riley Shaye and Logan Ross.  I enjoy jogging,  swimming, traveling, cooking and entertaining my friends.
    I thank you for sharing your children with me each day.
    With warm regards
    R. Scott Harnisch
