Hello! My name is Chris Pagliaro, and I am the music teacher at Whittier. I graduated from the Eastman School of Music with a Bachelor’s degree in music education and violin performance, after which I completed a Master’s degree in Suzuki pedagogy at the Hartt School in Connecticut, where I grew up. To further my practice, I have completed level 1 training in both the Orff and Kodaly methodologies of music teaching. Before coming to Whittier, I taught for three years in Denver Public Schools, and I am now very fortunate to be a member the diverse, caring, Whittier community. I am looking forward to exploring all types of music with the students, as well as creating music of our own! When I am not making music, I love to be hiking, fishing, snowboarding, and enjoying the outdoors. I am looking forward to a great year at Whittier!
