Ms. McKamey has had the honor to teach beginning and advanced band (gr. 5-8) at Holy Family Bilingual School on Monday’s and Friday’s for 35 years.

The summer of 1984 she was hired by Kennedy Catholic High School to begin the elementary band program. The goal was to establish instrumental music instruction at each Catholic school in the deanery as well as be a feeder program for the amazing Kennedy Catholic High School Bands. In addition to teaching, Ms. McKamey is active playing trumpet, especially at Catholic liturgies. Parish music is part of the McKamey Family heritage.
