Hello, my name is Gavin W. I am from Tustin, California and twenty-three years old. I am a recent college graduate of Concordia University Irvine receiving two degrees: a BA in Humanities and Fine arts and a BA in Music Education. I love teaching music, especially the academic side of music such as theory and history. I play the violin, piano, voice, cello, and church organ. I was the Children's Choir Director at Aldersgate United Methodist Church before the pandemic. As of now, I have been composing and arranging for Concordia.

Music is a gift from the heavens and should be shared all over the world. In the darkest times, the arts should be at their brightest directing out of that scary place. Music has the power to connect and to understand what has happened in the past. I hope you will appreciate music as much as myself and continue on this journey together.

I am knowledgeable, kind, compassionate, patient, sympathetic (I was a music major, I know the pressure), understanding, reliable.

Sight Singing,

Sight Singing

As a music student, you have two years of music theory (lecture) along with aural skills (lab) which is a lot of sight singing and ear training. I’m the choir director, I do a lot of sight-singing with my 6-11-year-olds. Sight-singing is not the same as voice lessons. I am not a vocalist! Sight-singing is a type of aural skill and if you need help with aural skills this is where you will sign up.
Violin,

My primary instrument as musician has been the violin all of my musical career. I have been playing violin for over ten years and been playing professionally for about three.
