  • Welcome to music at Sunset Ridge!

    My Name is Mr. John Denton and I teach K-6 General Music, 6-8 Grade Chorus, Musical Theater, and Music Technology/Pop Music Lab.

    I wear many hats at our school, district, and state level but the one I am most proud of is being a teacher to your children.

    We treat music as a language at Sunset Ridge and while my goal is to keep students engaged and driven towards a love of music; our true goal is mastery and literacy of musical concepts.

    By their eighth grade year they will have composed, improvised, transposed, performed, sung, drummed, strummed, and recorded in a number of interactive experiences with one ultimate goal...

    "helping students make connections between the music we make at school and the music they encounter in the world."
