Mr. Short has been playing music since he was five years old and has taught in the public schools since 1994, landing at Tularcitos in 2001. He is an experienced performer/composer/arranger and loves to bring smiles to kids faces while sharing with them the wonderful world of music.
K-5 students listen to many styles of music from many countries. They learn to read simple music notation as they clap, sing and occasionally "dance to the music!"
4th & 5th graders have the opportunity to learn to play an instrument as they participate in Tular's instrumental & choral groups, giving several performances throughout the year.
