TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been a music teacher for three years, having experience both in public and private areas of education. Currently I teach K-6 General Music, 4th-6th Grade Honor Choir, and 5th – 6th Grade Marimba Ensemble. I also have a private lesson studio for students who want to study clarinet, saxophone, recorder, or guitar.

MY TEACHING STYLE

When teaching students about music I always make it a priority that instruction is tuneful, artful, beatful, and joyful. In my classroom I include singing, movement, creating (games, musicals and skits, props), and playing with quality percussion and wind instruments. My influences include methodologies from Feierabend, Kodaly, and Orff.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

School and private lesson students consistently receive excellent and superior ratings at State Solo and Ensemble events. Academic Honor Roll at Central Washington University from 2007 - 2011. First Place - Collegiate Reed Ensemble Division at Musicfest Northwest (Gonzaga University, Spokane, WA) in 2010.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

In 2011 I received my Bachelor of Music in music education from Central Washington University. Also I am certified in Walt Hampton Hot Marimba - Level 1 from World Music Drumming.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I am married to an amazing wife and we have three wonderful Labrador dogs. In addition, I have a passion and sense of enthusiasm for educating students about life skills and the art of music!
