Mr. Nathaniel Wardlaw

Hello! My name is Nathaniel Wardlaw, and I will be the new K-5 Music/5th Grade Chorus teacher here at Springhurst. Before Springhurst, I taught music and chorus for five years in the Albany NY area. As a musician outside of teaching, I am frequently engaged as a freelance accompanist for choirs and solo vocalists, musical directing for community theatres and playing organ and choir directing for various churches. I also enjoy playing the guitar, banjo, bass and harmonica! Students in my classes will have fun learning and engaging with music from a variety of styles and cultures. When I am not teaching or involved in music activities, I enjoy attempting to master the art of BBQ cooking, and hanging out with my wife and my giant black lab Bruce.
