    Hello! 

    My name is Dr. Joshua Anderson.  This is my ninth year teaching music at Kellar Primary and my eleventh year in the Peoria School District.  I have taught all ages, K-12, and also have experience in higher education at Kansas State University and Texas Tech University.  I am a Farmington, IL native and attended Illinois State University securing a bachelor's degree in music education and hold a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction with an endorsement in ESL from Concordia University Chicago. Additionally, I have a doctorate of education from Capella University.  
     
    I enjoy the Kellar educational community and look forward to future classes with these amazing students.  This site will be used to connect parents/guardians and students with additional information about the music classroom and activities.  Please feel free to email if you have any questions! 
     
    This Year…

     

    Kellar School Song

    We are the Kellar Colts

    And we have a lot of spirit through and through,

    We stand for pride and team-work

    To our family friends and country we’ll be true,

    We’ll cheer for one another

    So at Kellar we shall let our motto be

    Let’s go Red, White and Blue

    U.S.A. and Kellar We Love You!

     
    Classroom:
     
    The students work hard on new music appreciation and theory concepts.  The goal is to make the music classroom a FUN and STRUCTURED atmosphere.  We have use instruments and movement as a part of our learning process.  These elements allow your child to learn while having fun!
     

    Music Club:

    Music Club will resume when safe and in person.  We will meet weekly and rehearse in the morning at 7:30am and perform throughout the year and attend field trips.  Information will be sent out this October. 

    Performance Details:
     
    All performances will resume when it is approved.  All Kellar Primary School students have the opportunity to perform in our grade level concerts.  
     
    These performances typically take place in the gymnasium of Kellar Primary School.  Additional  information will be communicated to parents and guardians during the school year.  This is always A LOT of fun!
     
    Have a great day,  
     
    Dr. Anderson
