Connections are important

We believe that God created us for community. At Immanuel that plays out in different ways. We want to help you connect with God and with each other. We want to provide opportunities to use the gifts and talents God gave you in service to the church and the community. We want to support and encourage you (and for you to do the same with others) throughout all aspects of your life. 

We'd be happy to talk with you about getting connected at Immanuel. Come and visit us this weekend!

Dana Robinson

Dana Robinson

Music Teacher and Choir Director (Little Ark, K-8th)

 

Experience

Dana has been teaching music and movement to children and directing children’s choirs for preschool through high school age children for 11 years in churches and schools both in Oregon and Iowa.  She looks forward to now teaching music and directing the choirs and musicals here in Illinois at Immanuel Lutheran School.

Degree(s)

BA Music, Theatre/Dance from Luther College (Decorah, IA)

500 hr. certification in Kids’ and Family Yoga and special training in Children’s Yoga Therapy (for children with ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s)

Interests

When I am not teaching I love to read, sing, dance, be outside in God’s creation, and I especially enjoy traveling with my husband and three kids.  We love to travel and serve on mission trips together sharing our love and God’s word as a family.

Philosophy of Teaching

I believe in helping children to find their “voice” not only in their musical talents but as a child of God.  We will learn the basics of reading music, singing, and playing instruments, then give the students room to create music of their own.  In giving them the freedom to learn and explore within a creative setting in the fine arts, they grow in their confidence, as well as in their relationship with Christ.
