Music inspires creativity, positive brain development, and soothes the mind.
Music plays in our classrooms all throughout the day and is enjoyed live through our music program. Our music director, Mr. Mitchell Gustin, leads the exploration of music development and composition.
Native to Southern California, Mr. Mitchell Gustin is a pianist, composer, performing artist, and all around music educator. He recently returned from an eight month long stay in South Korea where he taught within EPIK (English Program in Korea) as a guest English teacher for elementary school grades 1-6. His experience in arts education spans five summers contributing as the Director of Productions to the IMPACT workshop held at New York University, where in a three-week arts intensive, international and U.S. students collaborate in multiple art practices to form a final multimedia production involving music, dance, theatre, visual art, and technology.
Mr. Mitchell currently teaches private piano, works at several high schools within the Capistrano Unified School District as an AVID tutor, and serves as the Assistant Director for St. Margaret’s Upper School musical, The Drowsy Chaperone. He studied music composition at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA, and plans to continue his education as a specialist of music curriculum and instruction for young learners.
