Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Taylor Duren
Hello! My name is Ms. Taylor Duren and I am so excited to be teaching music at Paine Elementary (south campus)! I am a recent graduate of the University of Alabama where I graduated with a bachelor's degree in instrumental music education. While I was a student, I was a member of the Million Dollar Band where I was given ample opportunities to perform and travel to many different cities in the US. My fiance and I live in Birmingham. We are excited to get married next summer! We have a black labrador retriever that is 2 years old. His name is Oscar! He is the sweetest dog and loves music...just like his mom! I am the choir and music director at a Methodist church in Tuscaloosa where I organize holiday programs, rehearse the adult and children's choir and attend weekly services. I am looking forward to an awesome year and working with you and your student!
