Mr. Michael Dunsmoor sums up his thoughts at the end of his class with students.

Mr. Michael Dunsmoor has been quite a traveling man as an orchestra teacher.

“I was in the Webster Groves School District and I worked at Webster Groves High School,” Dunsmoor said. “But I bounced around all over the place.”

Dunsmoor went to Berklee College of Music and received a bachelors degree in film scoring,

“I also have my masters in instrumental conducting from Webster University, and then I also have a certification through UMSL.”

He has played his fair share of instruments.

“I primarily play violin, viola, trombone and bass.”

Prior to teaching, he never thought he wanted to be in that profession.

“When I was working with a bunch of 6th graders in Webster Groves, it was one of those things where I just realized I had a knack for teaching and that I enjoyed it.”

His favorite part about teaching is transitioning from one point to the next and seeing growth in his students.

“I like helping students make sense of things,” he said.

He hopes his lessons continue lifelong and help students achieve their dreams.

“I always have an end goal in mind, and I make adjustments toward that goal.”
