Music Teacher/Music Director: Mr. Johnathan Doerr

I am Mr. Johnathan Doerr (pronounced "dare"), and I am the music teacher at World Compass Academy! This is my tenth year in music education and fifth year as a classroom teacher. I started my teaching career as the director of a drum and bugle corps (kind of like a marching band!). I increased program participation from 25 students to 400+ students over three years. 


I have a passion for ethnomusicology and bring that passion into the classroom every day. I love to do projects/units that transport us into the musical scenes of other countries and dive into the cultural significance and history of the vast array of musical styles around our beautiful world. I also have a passion for musical theater and ballet!
