Joe Snyder: Upper School Choir Director


What motivated and inspired you to teach? My father was a teacher, so I grew up in the educational environment. Music has always been a part of my life, and I feel that every person needs the arts in their lives. I had the desire to share that belief with young people.

What makes you excited to come to school every day? I'm excited to see the faces and feel the energy from the students. There is nothing else like it to motivate me to be better at what I do.

What life lesson do you want your students to learn in your classroom? I want my students to have confidence in themselves and in what they can accomplish. If someone doesn't feel they can do something, they won't try.

Tell us a fun or interesting fact about yourself! I am a Broadway addict. I travel to NYC whenever I can and see as many shows as possible. My all-time favorite shows are Cabaret, Hairspray, and Westside Story (in alphabetical order).

What is your favorite book and why? I enjoy books by Dan Brown - The Da Vinci Code was my introduction to the author.

If you could have dinner with three people, alive or not, who would they be? Johann Sebastian Bach, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Oprah Winfrey.
