Mr. Nicholas Denman

Hello, I am Mr. Denman and I am honored to be a part of the Sunrise family. This is my fourth year at Sunrise Elementary and my seventh year in the district. I was born and raised in the snowy town of Camillus, New York which is on the outskirts of the city of Syracuse. I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the State University of New York at Fredonia with a minor in Visual Art. I did my student teaching in New York City at both the Celia Cruz Bronx High School of Music and the Richard Rodgers School of the Arts and Technology. Soon after, I moved to Phoenix, Arizona where I have thrived and continued to flourish since. Apart from playing my main instrument, the tuba, I enjoy drawing & painting, watching scary movies, learning the Polish language, playing strategy games, and practicing personal growth and development in all areas of my life. I am excited for this school year and all the musical magic it will bring.
