Hello Encino Park Eagles!
For those of you that don't know me I'm Mr. Valdes, one of Encino Park's awesome music teachers. This is my 6th year teaching music at this school. I graduated from Trinity University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Music and again in 2016 with a Master of Arts in Teaching. I then taught at Tuscany Heights as a long-term music sub before starting at Encino Park in the Fall of 2016.
I love teaching music and, of course, love playing and listening to it as well. I am a singer, who can also play guitar, ukulele, piano, bass, cello, percussion, and (my personal favorite) the recorder. I'm also a huge pokemon fan. I play and collect the trading cards. And I love to work out and get strong!
I am so excited to be teaching music again this year. We have lots of fun songs, instruments, games and activities to learn, and it is going to be a blast!
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! I can't wait to see you all! Let's have a great '21-'22 school year.
Stay safe. Stay healthy. See ya'll soon.
