Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Dustin Griffin
Hello! My name is Mr. Dustin Griffin and I am very happy to be the choral director at WMDS! I have been singing and performing for as long as I can remember and love making music with students, and clearly have a bias for choral music. My goal is for all students to develop an appreciation for singing and choral music as well as an understanding of important musical concepts. I believe that all students can be musical!
I graduated with a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from the University of Central Missouri with teacher certification in K-12 Vocal Music Education. I also received a Bachelor of Arts in Music degree from Northwest Missouri State University. Previously I have taught private voice lessons with most of my experience working with the adolescent voice. I love music of all genres and would love to integrate various musical styles in the choral classroom. I am very excited to work with your students this school year!
