Welcome to the new Ryder’s Music Program! My name is Valvasti Williams, I have been teaching in the Chicago Public Schools system for 26 years. I have been creating marching/concert bands for many years. I have a B.S. in Elementary/Secondary Education (Grambling State University, 1985) and a M.A. in Music Education (VanderCook College of Music.) I will continue my education in achieving a doctorate in music education. I am a very active member of the great purple and gold fraternity Omega Psi Phi. Also, I enjoy both bowling and roller skating. My teaching vision is to foster an atmosphere promoting music academic excellence, occupational preparedness and social responsibility.
Monday - Friday
Teachers attend GLM on Wednesdays. Conference by appointment only.
