As a music educator, Nathan’s primary responsibility is to create a safe and nurturing environment in which his students can explore and learn about music. This type of educational atmosphere fosters a child’s interest in music and promotes future learning. In order to create a caring community that centers around music education, a teacher must genuinely care for his or her students, implement a curriculum that considers the individual needs of the students and be able to successfully utilize classroom management strategies.
In addition to teaching, Nathan also really enjoys playing drum set and percussion in all sorts of settings and with many different ensembles. He’s had great fun playing drum set for a musical repertory theatre in the Rocky Mountains, playing percussion for the Sound of Silent Film Festival in New York City and Chicago as well as playing with jazz and rock bands all over the city.
