Hello Basha Bear Family! My name is Kevin Joseph and I am excited to be the Associate Director of Bands here at Basha High. Go Bears!
My Education and Professional Background
Prior to his appointment at Basha, Mr. Joseph was the Director of Bands at Rhodes Junior High School in Mesa, Arizona. Mr. Joseph is passionate about education, conducting, and performing. He was chosen to conduct the Mesa Public Schools Elementary Honor Band, Mesa Community College bands, as well as serve as a consultant for Mesa community college summer music camp. As a performer, Mr. Joseph regularly plays Tuba with the Red Mountain Brass Quintet and the Chandler Symphony. As an educator, Mr. Joseph has worked with various schools and organizations focusing on brass pedagogy and performance, recently helping Dobson HS finish 4th in the state marching championships.
My Educational Philosophy
As a music educator, I am determined to foster excellence through inquiry-based music education. I firmly believe that creating a space where students feel comfortable to express themselves through music is the key to a lifetime of enrichment. I aspire at all times to provide opportunities that nurture leadership skills, compose rigorous curriculum that challenge students to develop awareness of their role as global citizens and foster a collaborative and student-led environment that allows full actualization of academic potential.
