My name is Autumn Bourg, and I began my teaching career here in the Valley in 2005 after moving from the mitten state, Michigan. I began building music programs in 2008 based on the Arizona State Standards. In 2013 I started Autumn’s Treble Makers. Inspiring others and sharing my love and passion for music has been a lifelong dream of mine.
It goes back to the days of carrying my little purple boom box around and rolling the windows down at gas stations while singing at the top of my lungs hoping that my talents would be discovered. I come from a musical, artistic background, my dad is a musician, and my mom is an artist. I started performing at my church at a young age and continued to perform in choirs, theater, band and on stage throughout my whole life.
I knew I wanted to teach music after my high school band director shared with my parents how he could see such great potential and the talent in me. His dedication and belief in me has been one of the greatest gifts and has helped transform me into the person I am today. My goal since I started teaching back in 2005, has been to be that same kind of role model for my students.
