Bio
I am a recent graduate from The College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College), and I am looking for employment in music teaching. I have completed my final semester, earning my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education. This past semester I have successfully fulfilled my student teaching requirement at Freehold Township High School, Freehold, NJ. I have passed the Praxis exam with a score of 172, and have obtained my teaching certification in music for the state of New Jersey.

During my student teaching experience, I worked with grades 9-12 concert band, marching band, and brass ensemble, as well as music theory, and general music classes. In this time, I learned new skills in classroom management, time management, and communication. Also, during my sophomore and junior practicum experiences, I worked with 7th and 8th grade instrumental and general music students, as well as elementary music students.

In addition to my Bachelor of Music degree, I also possess an Associate of Humanities degree from Brookdale Community College. At Brookdale I spent time working with 7th and 8th grade instrumental and general music students, and gained experience in teaching music technology as well as group piano.

I very much appreciate your taking the time to review my profile. Feel free to contact me at WDunn42@gmail.com.

Sincerely,
William Dunn Jr.
