K-12 Music Teacher/One Act Play

Hello! My name is Whitney van Zyl. I am the K-12 Music Teacher at Maywood. I am originally from Northeast Montana. I received my Bachelor's of Music Education from the University of Montana. I am currently working on receiving a Master's of Music Education from the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

I have taught K-12 Music in Northeast Montana for five years before moving to Nebraska. I have been teaching music in Maywood since Fall 2018. I have spent thirteen years teaching private piano lessons as well.

My husband and I live on a small acreage south of Hershey. We enjoy spending our time outside, especially at the lake, and with friends. We spend many weekends barbecuing even when it is wintertime. Some of my hobbies are photography and travel.
