MUSIC TEACHER: JOSHUA KROHN
This year will be my fifteenth year of teaching with the majority of those years spent at the elementary level. I spent some time teaching high school as well as college and found that singing, dancing, playing instruments with young children, and getting to be a bit sillier made me a much happier music teacher. I celebrated my two year anniversary this past summer and I still feel like a newlywed. I currently lead many professional developments for music educators throughout the Washington D.C. area as a member of the LEAP team for music as well as nationally (most recently in Illinois) and was a proud executive board member of the Virginia Elementary Music Education Association. Over the last six years I have been nominated for D.C. Teacher of the Year four separate times, I am a proud nominee of the National LifeChanger Of The Year award for two separate years, and I have been nominated for a Grammy award in music education. I’m also proud to have earned a Ph.D. in music education as well as National Board Teacher Certification in early/middle childhood music. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you would like to set up a time to talk in person about the performing arts here at Brent. Hope to see you soon!
