Hope Gauger
Music Instructor


Hope attended Lake Area Techincal Institute in Watertown for one year learing about photography.  She then switched to SDSU to earn a bachelor's degree in Music Education.  She grew up using music in worship and is the Worship Leadder for the college and youth ministries at GracePoint in Brookings.  She was also a counselor at Cedar Canyon Camp in the Black Hills.  Hope believes that "Music was created for us to better connect with our God.  I make it my priority to live this out in every day and my music teaching lifestyle."

Hope grew up in Watertown, SD with her parents, Burdell and Tammy Gauger.  She has 2 siblings, Rachel and Matthew.  Hope and her siblings all attended SDSU for education and love GracePoint church and the college ministry of OASIS.  Her dad is the choir director at Watertown High School and her mom has always been a stay at home mom with some teaching positions on the side.  

Hope enjoys doing yoga and playing Spikeball and tennis.  She likes drinking coffee and going to Qdoba whenever she can.  All of the things that she loves doing are even more fun when joined by her family and friends.
