Mr. David Marshall
2021-2022 will be my ninth year as a music educator. I've been so lucky to be at Indian Hill for eight of those years!
I earned my bachelor's degree in music education from VanderCook College of Music in Chicago, IL. During my time in Chicago I was lucky enough to perform in a wide array of musical settings, learning all the time. I greatly appreciate music across all genres, the influence music has on the world, and my goal every day is to help our students grow a yearning for knowledge in all subjects compounded with a sense of diligence that will help them as they continue on their path through life.
Our curriculum at Indian Hill is centered around acquiring and understanding music like we would a language. Western music notation allows us to read and interpret a composer's intentions for how musical phrase should be heard. However, when we acquire a language we start by watching and mimicking. In our music room, we do just that. We start by creating and we learn to read as we progress. We have a wide array of musical instruments to help us on our musical journey and by the time we are ready to move to middle school, we've played them all and learned a great deal about the wonderful world and the music that comes out of it.
