Who am I?
It is great to be back for my third year at St. Catherine and I can't wait to see what the kids will accomplish.
My name is Joshua Jorgensen, I earned my Masters of Arts in Teaching from Seattle Pacific University in 2015. I have been working in education for five years and I am an active musician in the Seattle area, my primary instruments are Tuba and Bass Trombone.
Curriculum & Instruction
In the general music classes I use a balanced variety of the Kodaly, Orff and Dalcroze methods of instruction. I utilize American Folk songs as a means for introducing musical concepts. This method is similar to the Common Core Standards in that it is based on a tiered system of learning that builds on previous years experiences.
Below you will find my syllabus for the two different levels of learning.
