Sandy Belschner

Executive Director

Mrs. Belschner’s area of professional expertise is business and marketing, but music and teaching are in her bones. She was singing with her mother at church “revivals” at the age of five. When her sister came along a few years later that trio was the foundation for Sandy’s lifelong love of music. With a guitar in her hand, Sandy began teaching music in the children in her church while she was still in high school. Through the years, she has been blessed to sit under the direction of gifted choir directors skilled in the Kodaly method of teaching, beginning in high school, through college and beyond. After earning a B.S. in Public Relations at Missouri State University (1988), Sandy married and started a family which has grown to seven children and four grandchildren (so far). Along the way she homeschooled for 16 years, enjoying the blessings and challenges that come with being the wife of an Air Force officer. In 2008, the whole family planted themselves in Moscow, Idaho where Sandy began a new chapter in her life, serving as managing editor for Logos Press. She also went back to school and earned her Kodaly Level 1 certification at Portland State University (2014), finding her niche teaching young musicians, both at Logos School and Schola Cantorum. Sandy and her husband, Brent, can’t help but chuckle at the fact that they frequently serve as callers at Family Folk Dances (don’t tell anyone, but Brent only recently learned to keep a steady beat).
