Hello! My name is Mr. Warren and I am the music teacher at Youngs Grove Elementary School. I graduated from Shorter University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. While at Shorter, I was involed in the band, chorus, and musical theatre programs. While in the band, I served as drum major my senior year as well as principal euphonium player. While in the musical theatre program, I was cast as Dario in the musical, "Death Takes a Holiday," and was the accordion player in the pit orchestra for "Spitfire Grill" I also play a multitude of instruments, including: all brass instruments, drums, piano, electric bass, and accordion.
My goal, as a music educator, is to make sure that every child feels welcome in the classroom. I strive daily to provide an environment in which every child can succeed. As an elementary educator, I do not know who walks into my room on a daily basis, meaning I do not know the potential of each child that I see. As far as I know, I could be teaching the next Ludwig Van Beethoven, Louis Armstrong, Bill Gaither, Taylor Swift, or John Legend. I want each child to love music and to always try their best, and my goal is to create a clasroom in which this can happen.
