Yazmine Fleming

Lower and Middle School Music

Yazmine teaches general music to students in first through fifth grade, and chorus to Middle Schoolers.

Yazmine has built her career in a variety of roles, including teaching in multiple college settings, acting as musical director and conductor for many professional shows, and teaching music classes that include piano, chorus, music theory, and ensemble music. She spent eight years teaching at the Hollywood campus of the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. 

At Park, she has instituted a number of contemporary programs that include projects on Hip Hop, songs for social justice, and the real history of Rock and Roll. She has created and directed Lower School performances that integrated storytelling, dance, instrumental performance, and contemporary music. 

Yazmine has designed and published a website titled Stop AAPI Hate that included education and resources on AAPI curriculum development, supporting students and colleagues, and bystander intervention.

“I work consistently to teach music with passion, creativity, and an emphasis on social justice. I build relationships on mutual respect and democracy. I hope to inspire my students to be an asset to their learning community.”

Yazmine holds a B.F.A. in Keyboard Studies from California Institute of the Arts and an M.M. in Piano Performance from Kent State University. She and fellow music department member Chris Peterson are the parents of a Park student in the Class of 2030.
