    A Note!


    My name is Mr. Joshua Anderson.  This is my fifth year teaching music at Kellar Primary and my seventh 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 and ESL from Concordia University Chicago.  I am enjoying the Kellar educational community and look forward to future experiences with the 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!


    So far this year…


    The students and I have been working hard on new music appreciation and theory concepts.  My goal is to make the music classroom a FUN and STRUCTURED atmosphere.  We have already started to 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 start in October.  We meet Thursday mornings at 7:30 am.  We currently have 5 performances scheduled!  Additionally, we also take two Music Club field trips.  This is a fun experience for students and parents both!  The performances are as follows:
