Joellen Fletcher - Woodwinds, Piano
Joellen began teaching private lessons back in little Akron, Ohio in 2011 for both a private lesson music school [FireFly Music School] as well as traveling to houses for in home lessons. She started teaching general music in public schools in 2013, and have always used instruments as a tool to teach music in my classroom. She now teach here in Vegas for a preK-5th grade elementary school but it is a magnet school so we do have a beginning band, as well as a developing violin class and drumming ensemble as well. My ensemble and performance list is quite extensive so to save space I will just say that I was an advanced musical student in my grade school years and joined the Cleveland Youth Symphony [an honors band affiliated with the Cleveland Orchestra]. I was in the top jazz ensembles in both high school and college, my high school marching band is also quite renowned. During my time at Kent State University I performed with over 20 ensembles ranging from saxophone quartets, gospel choir, bassoon ensemble, and the top concert bands. In college I was even selected to perform the bass clarinet solo in Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances with the KSU Orchestra. Saxophone and clarinet have always been my “Main” instruments however I am quite proficient at most western instruments.
