Mr. Campbell received his Associate in the Art of Music Performance degree from Suffolk County Community College in 2005. After earning his Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree in 2009 from the C.W. Post campus of Long Island University, Mr. Campbell earned a full graduate scholarship as well as the position of Choral Graduate Assistant and thus remained at LIU Post to earn his Master in the Art of Music Theory and Composition degree in 2016.
Consistent routines and procedures are the framework of a rigorous, safe, and fun music learning environment. When students know what to expect, they are more inclined to experiment, volunteer for leadership roles, solo, make predictions, and improvise. Each music lesson builds on students' previous music achievements, is guided by Common Core Aligned Arts Standards, and becomes informed and enriched by students' personal and historic cultural identities.
Aside from his career in music education, Mr. Campbell is active in NYC's thriving music scene. Currently, he is a synth player in Dolphins Don't Love, an experimental wave-gaze rock band and composing a series of original songs. Previously, he performed as a tenor in Cantori New York, a community chorus known for premiering new music by living composers in addition to maintaining a vast repertoire of obscure and daring music from our forgotten past.
I look forward to making music with the Cadwallader Colden community!
