ABOUT MR. GIORDANO

 

Welcome students and parents to the Music Class website for the 2018-2019 school year. This may be my first year at Greenwood, but it is my fifth year teaching Elementary Music! Music is a huge part of my life and a part of who I am. My journey began all the way back in 4th grade when I picked up the saxophone. I fell in love with the sound, the way it looked, and the way it felt when I pressed my fingers on the keys. In High School, I played the saxophone in marching band, concert band, jazz band, orchestra, pit orchestra, and musicals. I went to Rutgers University for a few years before transferring to the Manhattan School of Music where I graduated in 2012. I knew I wanted to be a Music Teacher, so I attended Montclair State University's teaching program and received my Masters in 2014.

 

If I'm not playing music, you can find me involved in sports. I love soccer, tennis, and running. I also enjoy watching the New York Giants, the New York Mets, and the Rutgers Football Scarlet Knights!!!  

 

Although I am passionate about music and sports, teaching is what truly brings me the greatest joy. It is my mission to share my appreciation of music to all students. Through music, we can learn to be responsible and cultural citizens in the society we live in. I look forward to working with each of you and watching you grow musically.
