Meet the Instructor
We are proud to have a very accomplished music teacher inspiring students in our Band and Orchestra ensembles at Whitman.
This is Mr. Orsen’s 9th year at Whitman Middle School. He received his degree in Music Education from the University of Washington. When not teaching, he enjoys playing with local bands, including the Seattle Sounders Sound Wave Marching Band and the University of Washington Alumni Band.

About Music at Whitman Middle School
The Whitman Music Program has grown exponentially in the past seven years and is an unqualified success! This success is due to its fabulous director and the continuing support of its parent community.
Friends of Whitman Music is committed to supporting music education and to providing all students with an opportunity to explore music at Whitman. We welcome any parents, guardians, and community members who want to join us in our efforts.
Each year, we have various fundraising campaigns, such as bake sales at concerts, tee shirt sales, solicitation of private/corporate donations, and seeking out sponsorship and grants. In addition to raising money, we always need volunteers to help out at concerts, photograph and video performances, chaperone field trips, and bake and sell baked goods at the concerts.
