Profiles in Teaching with Technology
S2 E6: Marc Tartell
Marc Tartell has taught at Briarcliff Manor Schools in New York since 1996. He currently conducts the NYSSMA gold-rated concert bands, jazz bands, offers private instrumental instruction, and also teaches digital music.
But Marc wasn't always a music educator! He earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees from Juilliard in music performance, and spent the first part of his career as a member of the Mexican State Symphony. After three years of performing, he went back to school and earned his MBA at Columbia University. He spent the subsequent decade in advertising and marketing, but eventually went back to his musical roots and began teaching. His story is a fascinating one!
