Hello Music Families,
Every school year comes with many changes. I am one of those changes. My name is Jason Paquette and I will be teaching music at Farrington Elementary and Hussey Elementary this year! I am extremely excited about stepping into this position and cannot wait to share my passion of music with all of the wonder musicians here in Augusta.
A little about myself. I grew up in a house of musicians. Both of my parents taught music in the public schools for thirty years a piece. The apple did not fall far from the tree. My brother is an accomplished pianist, guitar player and singer song writer. I went to the University of Maine in Orono where I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education with a focus in Vocal performance. Since college (many moons ago) I have been teaching public education in middle school and high school. This will be my first professional experience in elementary teaching. I live in Sabattus, Maine with my girlfriend and our four kids ranging from 5 to 14 years old. When I am not playing guitar, banjo, piano, saxophone, being a Dad or walking the dog, you can find me in my canoe or on my dock trying to catch the big one!
I am looking forward to this coming school year and all the challenges and adventures it will bring! If you would like to chat please send me an email or leave me a phone message and will get back to you as soon as I can!
