Ashley Copeland, Music

Hello! My name is Ashley Copeland and I am so excited to teach music at Mitchell Nielson School this year! Although I am new to Murfreesboro City Schools, this is my ninth year teaching, having previous experience ranging from preschool through middle school. I am a proud alumna from Middle Tennessee State University, receiving a double-certification Bachelor of Music degree in both instrumental  and vocal/general music education, as well as studying abroad at the Belgium Clarinet Academy in Oostende, Belgium in 2008.

When I'm not teaching, I enjoy calligraphy, watching football, and spending time with family. Originally from East Tennessee, I now live in Murfreesboro with my husband Jonathan (who is also a musician!), our daughter Shelby Grace, and our two Maine Coon cats, Kiwi and Vera. A few of my favorite things include 70s/80s music, ice cream, coffee, and the color pink. I am so excited to get to know the students and families of Mitchell Neilson!
