My Home Page - Music K-6
Welcome to Mr. Tuttle's Website GES/MJT 2007-Present
My name is Mr. Tuttle. I am going on my 12th year of teaching music at the Granville Central School District. I went to school for music in Rochester and enjoy working with kids. I am married to Mrs. Tuttle who subs all around the county including our district. We have a wonderful yellow lab named Jasmine who always keeps us on our feet. Outside of the classroom I enjoy snowmobiling, hiking, kayaking, and pretty much anything that involves the outdoors. On the side I am currently running my own DJ business as well as writing and recording/ producing music. Music education is essential to everyone because it allows for the artistic aspect of mathematics, the freedom of self-expression, creativity, and the opportunity to problem solve to just name a few things. I believe that everyone has a musical gift and the ability to share it with others. In music class, students will have the chance to learn how to play multiple instruments such as, recorder, various percussion instruments, piano, ukulele, and guitar to name a few. Students will learn how to read musical notation, and work together as a team. With this in mind, it is my goal to gracefully push students to their limits, to show them everything they can be musically, and then to attempt to surpass that point within my classroom. I recognize that all students have their own personalities, backgrounds, and learning styles. I differentiate between these learning styles and develop teaching plans which will facilitate all students, plans that meet their needs no matter what level they are at. I want my students to be successful, not only in my classroom, but in their lives outside of school as well. As a teacher of music, I hope to encourage the passion I have for music in my students. I'd like to thank everyone for supporting our musical programs here at Granville, New York.
Mr. Tuttle incorporates both state and national music standards in his music curriculum. A student that is well rounded with these standards will be able to understand music not just at the state level but also at the national level.
