About your music teacher ...
I am thrilled to join Kingswood K-8 and be part of the San Juan Unified School distrct as a full time music teacher. Last year I taught music at Cowan Fundamental and Thomas Edison Language Institue. Prior to joining San Juan USD I taught in the Folsom Cordova Unified School District as a 3rd Grade teacher at both Theodore Judah and Mather Heights in their Academy for Advanced Learners. As a music teacher I bring a wide variety of experience and knowledge to the classroom.
I was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA to a family of educators. I attended Pepperdine University and received a bachelor degree in Music and Theater. After graduating I moved with my wife to Santa Barbara, CA and began a teaching position as a music teacher while concurrently pursuing my multiple subject teaching credential. After my teaching credential I earned my masters degree in classical voice from University of California, Santa Barbara and moved to the Bay Area. In 2016 my wife and I moved to Sacramento and started our family. Our eldest son Everett is 4 years old and our youngest son Vincent is 8 months old. We are keeping busy!
In addition to teaching music I am a professional classical vocalist in the Sacramento region and sing with Sacramento Philharmonic & Opera, Sacramento State Vocal Music Department, and various other performance companies in the region.
