• Mr. Gravin is in his 24th year teaching music in the public schools (17 years in FCUSD). violin in motion!   My B.M.A. and M.A. degrees are in cello performance, and I have a CA Clear teaching Credential and an Administrative Tier 1 Credential from Chapman University.  I  play the cello professionally with the Sacramento Philharmonic and Opera, the Sacramento Choral Society Orchestra, and Music Circus/Broadway Series productions. I coach youth orchestras and ensembles, and adjudicate for auditions and music festivals such as the CMEA and Golden Empire Music Festivals.  I have organized and directed several youth and adult orchestras, and am currently director of orchestras at Sierra Mountain Music Camp.

    I enjoy teaching stringed instruments especially, but also teach general music (singing, recorder, theory, and music appreciation).  I love giving young students their first introduction to musical instruments!  This schoolyear all instruction is starting out as online distance learning.  With this new and challenging way of teaching will come opportunities for learning and performance that have not been used previously.  As the schoolyear progresses I will continue to expand my curriculum to coincide with this new instruction format.  Here's to 20-21!

    Music instruction currently involves all TK-5 students.  Lessons are posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays on our Google website,
    and should be completed before the next Tuesday or Thursday lesson.  Lessons for 4th/5th grade are 35 minutes (that includes recorder practice).  All other grades have 20 minute lessons (no recorders).
    Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions you have.  We are working hard to standardize the way you receive and complete assignments!  I hope you enjoy you musical journey this year.
