•  Welcome to the NMS Band Site
    Ms Partin-Olson (You can call her Ms Partin), teaches band at Northdale Middle School.  She has been teaching band in Minnesota for ten years in grades 5-12 and this is her third year at Northdale.  She graduated from St. Olaf College in 2004 and has a Master's in Music Education from St Thomas University in St Paul.  Ms Partin joined band as a fourth grader and has been passionate about it ever since.  She lives in Crystal with her infant twin sons, her husband, and her adorable cat, Puca.  In her spare time, Ms Partin likes to perform with the Plymouth City Band, compose music for middle school bands, read, scrapbook, make jewelry, and take the cat for walks (yes, on a leash).
    Thank you for supporting your student's musical interests! I am excited to work with your child and help them grow. Together we can help your child achieve success!
