Teaching Philosphy: As a music educator, I want students to value their own ability to think creatively and encourage them to use novel ways to demonstrate their knowledge. Education is not a one-size-fits-all discipline, and I believe it's essential that my approach is tailored to the specific learning needs of each student. I get to know the students as individuals so I can appropriately support and challenge them musically.

Anthony Castillo is a native of San Antonio, Texas. He attended Thomas Jefferson High School and was in the high school band under the direction of Ms. Roxanne Vickers. His primary instrument is percussion. With over 17 years of playing experience, Anthony is a well-known percussion teacher in the surrounding area.

Many of his students also have competed in the UIL Texas State Solo & Ensemble competition and received a Division 1 as accolades. He has taught students ages 5 to 68, and have found that at every age, the discovery of how music can communicate and connect people is richly rewarding.  His ultimate goal is to do more than teach percussion, he helps students become problem solvers and independent learners, as they find their own artistic voices. He asks lots of questions to help students make their own musical decisions and take ownership of their interpretations.
