Mr. Raymond

Welcome to Music!!

Mr. Raymond 
PreK-7th Grade Music

My name is Patrick Raymond and I am a graduate of Westminster College with a Bachelor's of Music degree in Music Education.
Campfire side chats, nerding-out about history and philosophy, learning a new style of music, and Ledo's Pizza...
...these are a few of my favorite things.

Native to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, I had the amazing opportunity to grow up with music all around me.
From the indie cover band music scene to the concert halls of Heinz Hall with the world renowned Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, I have developed the passion for making sure every student is exposed to the type of musical upbringing that I had as a child. 

Every student will have the amazing privilege of witnessing, experiencing, and participating in all kinds of music  from Beethoven to the Back Street Boys. 

My philosophy for early music education is all about getting students up off of their feet and involved with the music. Getting students in the driver seat of user friendly instruments and ensembles to get their feet wet is
[in my opinion] one of the best ways to plant the seeds for a life of music - whether that be just as a lifelong hobby, subject to make you smarter, or just to simply add beauty and drive to a person's life.
