About Brandon Washington
Brandon T. Washington is an accomplished musician who has performed solo and as part of groups for many years. The winner of 40 North’s Teacher ACE Award, Washington has been a full-time teacher since 2006 — and a sub for 12 years before that — joyfully strumming his guitar as he provides lessons for boys and girls in kindergarten through fifth grade.
His outreach extends to the University of Illinois, where he serves as coordinator for the Rock Band Songwriting portion of the Illinois Summer Music Camp.
To Washington, there’s nothing more gratifying than seeing a student of his suddenly “get it” after struggling to sing on-key or follow a rhythm.
