Christian Bigliani recently completed his third year as chorus and theatre director at DeSana Middle School in Alpharetta, GA. He received a B.M. in piano performance from Shorter College and a M.M. in Music Teaching/Learning and Piano Accompanying from the Eastman School of Music. Prior to teaching, Christian was a freelance pianist in Georgia, and New York. In addition to teaching, Christian sang with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Choruses and had the opportunity to perform with the ASO and Choruses at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. In January, Christian presented a session at the Georgia Music Educator's Association In-Service conference titled, "Glocken-what? Inspiring creativity through pop song covers!". He was also proud to be named DeSana's Teacher of The Year 2018-2019. Even though he has thoroughly enjoyed his time teaching middle school, Christian will be moving to Rochester, NY in the fall to pursue a PhD in Music Teaching and Learning. You can always catch Christian with a ukulele in hand or talking about improvisation and creativity in the choral classroom.
