TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Classroom Composers is a team of three music teachers, Kevin Hoff, Jessica Frank, and Jesse Rogers, all based out of San Diego, California. Between the three of us, we have experience teaching K-6 general music, elementary 4/5 band/strings, middle school band/strings/guitar, and high school marching band, strings, concert band, and choir. We teach at Title I schools with a significant amount of free and reduced lunch students. The majority of our students use school instruments and private lessons are a distant fantasy. Finally, our classes often are large (50+ students) with mixed instrumentation.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Music is fun, and students should be having fun while learning music. Our goal is that each kid leaves the classroom happier then when they arrived. We strive to create a kid-friendly, team-first, non-competitive environment, in which ensemble success is the ultimate goal. We believe in going slow when introducing new foundational concepts, especially at the younger ages, to ensure that every student is successful. That being said, we do move the class along a quick pace so that we are learning a new skill/concept during every class meeting. We waste no time and we make sure that my advanced students are challenged throughout the class. All-in-all, our teaching style is fun yet demanding which ultimately leads to rewarding.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Our middle school and high school ensembles routinely receive Excellent and Superior ratings at their festival performances.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Why a Music Teacher Should Compose the Music for your Music Program? It’s simple really. Because they know what your students need. Don’t get us wrong, there are incredible pieces of music that have been written for elementary, middle, and high school bands and orchestras to play. Many of these pieces are loved by students and appreciated by audiences. But most of them are missing a very key component: they are not composed through a teacher lens. There is no judgement here! Band and Orchestra composers are great at what they do, often writing expertly to fit the ability levels of the students that will play their music. But ability level should not be the only consideration. Compositions should also be aligned with your pedagogy so they can be perfectly timed tools to support the growth and musicianship of your students. Now we know what you’re thinking: a piece usually loses that certain artful quality the more academic in nature it gets. Enter the “Classroom Composer”. This may seem too demanding of an undertaking: to compose quality music that is academic, easy to align to your teaching practice, and accessible for students, while retaining that certain artfulness embodied by modern band and orchestra masterworks. But here is where we submit to you it can be done! Composition is a skill that some teachers choose to develop alongside their teaching practice, and this kind of teacher becomes a double threat; someone who is able to both write wonderful music inspired by iconic composers, and guide a composition through their teaching lens. In an endeavor to bring this kind of composition to all of you, we have accepted this undertaking, and we can’t wait for you to see what we’ve written.
