K-3rd Grade Music Teacher
Owen Roberts joins us from The Berkeley School, where he has been the K-8 music teacher for the last seven years. Mr. Roberts studied classics and international relations as an undergraduate, then spent ten years playing in bands in Italy, New York, and back home in California. While earning his multiple subjects credential through the Bay Area Teacher Training Institute (BATTI) program, he worked as an assistant teacher in first and second grades at Marin Country Day School. Mr. Roberts was exposed to the Orff-Schulwerk approach to teaching music through various workshops before becoming a Level III certified Orff teacher. He is looking forward to being part of the Black Pine Circle School community.
Why I Work with Children
I love participating in the joy that children experience making music.
A Favorite Book
Shel Silverstein’s A Light In The Attic for its rhyme, meter, depth and levity
