Hi there! My name is Bryson Tarbet.
I currently teach in a rural school district just outside of Columbus, Ohio. I teach PreK-6th grade music between an elementary and middle school. I received my Bachelor’s of Music Education from Ohio Wesleyan University, and am currently a Master’s in Music Education student with a Kodály emphasis at Capital University.
I would consider myself a Kodály-inspired teacher, but I am always seeking out professional development and resources in a variety of pedagogical approaches.
I spent my first year out of college as a part of an intervention team for an elementary school, and I absolutely fell in love with the work that I was doing! Due to this experience, I feel very strongly about advocating for sensory and emotionally-inclusive classrooms.
I started That Music Teacher with the goal of sharing different perspectives on issues pertaining to the lives of music educators across the country. I hope that I will be able to share the strategies and skills I’ve developed and acquired with those who do not have similar strengths, and to also learn from those who do.
