Gavin Wilmoth

Mr. Gavin received two degrees in BA Humanities Fine Arts and BA Music Education from Concordia University Irvine. I love music and it is my passion. I play violin/viola, piano/organ, handbells, and sing. My stronger suit is on the academic side such as theory/history/aural skills and music ed philosophy. I have tutored music theory of all ages, the children's choir director of my church, and have conducted professional orchestras around Orange County. I have also taught piano and voice lessons.
