Welcome to Music with Mr. C 

River Mill Elementary 

     Hi everyone!  My name is Mr. C, and I am the Elementary Music Teacher at River Mill Elementary!  For those of you that don't know me, here is a little bit of my background:

       Daniel Czyzewicz graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education from Elmhurst College, near Chicago, IL.  During his time in college he was the recipient of the John Belushi Memorial Scholarship for Musical Excellence, the Music Talent Scholarship, the Presidential Scholarship (highest academic scholarship offered), and was nominated for the Thaskala Award for outstanding work in student teaching.

       Czyzewicz performs on a wide variety of instruments, with his primary instrument being string bass.  In addition to working as a gigging musician, he has performed in countless college ensembles including orchestras, choirs, jazz combos, and the internationally recognized jazz groups Late Night Blues (vocal jazz ensemble) and the Elmhurst College Jazz Band.  In addition to his four years of experience teaching private music lessons, Daniel has served as an Elementary Music Teacher at North Marion Primary School in Aurora, OR, and is now teaching at River Mill Elementary School in Estacada, OR. 

        Though young, Czyzewicz is a driven, dedicated educator who is equally passionate about music and teaching.
