Music & Theater!
My name is Wyatt Ellison and am thrilled to be the Music and Theater teacher at the O'Farrell Middle School. The performing arts have the power to inspire creativity, summon courage, and build excellent character. My goal is to help students develop into brave, thoughtful leaders who will enrich our world with their creative talents.
Curiosity is a superpower! The desire to explore has allowed me to enjoy many diverse professional experiences. As a performer, I have danced, sang, and acted on stages all over the world. This has included musicals, theater, theme parks, touring musical shows, competition dance teams, TV and commercials. I have worked as a Teaching Artist for multiple San Diego non profit organizations and serve on the Advisory Council for Classics 4 Kids. At SeaWorld San Diego I was a Producer, Director and VP of the Entertainment department where I helped an incredible team develop numerous shows, events, and atmospheric elements. I am also a proud graduate of San Diego State University with a Bachelor in Music Education, and a Master of Arts in the interdisciplinary studies of Music, Theater and Dance.
