In this episode we will be hearing from Fred Barrett, a current Artios faculty member at the Greenville, SC Artios campus.

He will be sharing with us how he found out about the Artios program, what aspects of the program made him want to become a teacher in it, and how teaching with Artios has influenced him.


Here is a little more information about our speaker:

The 2012-2013 school year will mark the third year for Fred Barrett on Artios' faculty. Fred graduated from Bob Jones University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education with a vocal proficiency. While there he was able to study choral conducting under Dr. Warren Cook and Dr. Beth Eubank, vocal performance under Dr. David Paker, and composition under world-renowned composer Dr. Dan Forrest. Fred was privileged to have his student teaching experience at Mauldin Middle School under the tutelage of Ms. Vanessa Rhodes, the Greenville Co. lead teacher for middle school music and Mr. Michael Nuss, president and chairman of the Arts America Foundation.  He was active in University choirs and orchestra, and held both musical and theatrical roles with the University Players. He enjoys singing and playing the guitar, violin, and piano. 


Fred is an avid student of history and enjoys teaching the social studies as well as music. Apart from teaching, Fred enjoys spending time with his family and friends and watching sports on the weekends.

From his early college years, Fred has served in his church as a Summer Sunday School teacher, webcast assistant and, for the past three years, as Assistant Activities Director and/or Music Director in Christian camps both in the US and Canada. He is passionate in his conviction that the arts are “to reflect the nature of God,” and believes it is his “responsibility as an educator to cultivate the call of God in the lives of [his] students.”
