Ms. Ashlynn Manning » Welcome!


Hi PRA Community,
Along with Krista Hwang, I teach elementary music here at PRA! This year I am teaching Kindergarten, 2nd, and 4th grade music, and co-teaching the 5th grade ensembles. I studied music history and theory with voice as my primary instrument at Oberlin College and Conservatory, and I have an MA in Education from CU Denver, with a focus on Critical Pedagogy. I started teaching elementary music in Colorado in 2018, and my first year at PRA was the 2020-2021 school year. 
My background is in singing, musical theater, and dance. I grew up in Long Island, NY, and I graduated from Walnut Hill School for the Arts near Boston, MA. I taught children's yoga classes for several years and believe strongly in the power of mindfulness for kids! I love being in nature and the beautiful outdoors, skiing, hiking, swimming, and seeing great performances!
I'm so excited to get to know all our amazing PRA students in person this year!
