Naomi L. Fernandez

Naomi Fernandez brings to ETM 18+ years of education experience in teaching and leadership roles. After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in K-12 Music Education from Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, Naomi went on to obtain her Master’s of Music Education through Boston University. Prior to working at ETM, Naomi has taught grades K-12 in public and private schools in Oregon, Nebraska, and California, including a wide range of ensembles such as concert band, hand bells, choir, show choir, steel drums, and group piano lessons. Naomi views music as a core subject that is a right for every student. “All students deserve the opportunity to explore and learn music in school. It should not be an elitist subject,” she says. “I believe that music should be both fun and productive. I believe in the value of humor to educate and manage. And, I believe music brings the opportunity for unity in diversity.”
