Ms. Galene Gia Martinez

Ms. Galene G. Martinez Introduction

I teach Instrumental Music and Computer Technology with Los Angeles Unified School District. I am in my 19th year teaching with LAUSD, the first 15 was teaching Instrumental Music, then I spent 4 years teaching computers, and now I am back to Music. The 2011-12 school year was my first year at William Mulholland Middle School, as well as my first in teaching computers. I am still at Mullholand MS, but I am now teaching music there, instead of computers. I have been teaching with LAUSD since 1996, starting with Traveling Elementary Orchestra for 3 years with the LAUSD Arts Education Branch, then moving to Robert Fulton Middle School (now known as Fulton College Preparatory School) in 1999 where I was for 5 years, until I moved to Northridge Academy High School in 2004 when the school opened. I then went to El Camino Real High School (now known as El Camino Charter High School), before going to Mulholland MS. I have a BA in Music from UC Berkeley and a Single Subject Professional Clear Credential in Music with a CLAD certificate & supplemental authorization in Computer Concepts and Applications from CSU Northridge. I also finished all the coursework for the Masters of Arts in Music Education at CSUN.

Educational Philosophy

No matter if a student chooses to become a musician or technician as a lifetime career, or just a consumer of music & technology during their lifetime, the basic fundamentals and foundations of music & technology should be taught to and experienced by all students in school, as music & technology are an integral part of human nature and development. My job is to further a young person’s knowledge, not only of music & technology, but also of all the arts & education in order to help make the student into a more informed and productive person in our society.
