Hey Everyone! My name is Matthew Stensrud and I currently teach Elementary Music and Movement with an emphasis on the Orff Schulwerk approach at George Mason Elementary School, an Alexandria City Public School in Alexandria, VA after teaching seven years at Annandale Terrace Elementary School for Fairfax County Public Schools in Northern Virginia. Welcome to my website! Here, you can watch mini-lesson videos, read articles and lesson plans, and learn more about teacher education workshops that I offer! So, take a look around!

I love connecting with fellow music educators and sharing in the joy of music-making and Orff with our students! Make sure to follow me on Instagram or Facebook and subscribe to my YouTube so we can stay in touch! There, you can find additional insights into my teaching – from an Orff lesson tip or resource idea, a strategy to consider, a video lesson, a lens into my students and my classroom, and much more! I always enjoy hearing from fellow educators, so reach out via email, text, Facebook, or Instagram and let me know what thoughts you have! By working together, we can better our students as musicians and people for years to come!

Your clinic was awesome today! Thank you so much for presenting and giving me ideas to help save my voice in the classroom. You are also really fun to watch present because you are so graceful in your movements! – Ashlynn Harrison
