Meet the Teacher
My name is Mr. McGarry and I’m pleased to be starting my second year as the music teacher at Swanson Elementary. Previously,I taught music at Stukey Elementary from 2007-2012 and then worked at Swallow Hill Music until 2018.
I’ve been involved in music through my whole life as an educator, trumpeter, guitarist, ukulelist, singer, songwriter and more. Music helps us celebrate life’s joys and weather its difficulties. I love teaching children, as children have a natural and uninhibited enthusiasm for music.
When I'm not teaching or playing music, I love hanging out with my family and dog as well as hiking, biking and running. I'm looking forward to a joyful year of music making at Swanson!
