8 years of music/choir teaching experience
15 years as a Worship Pastor
Hello my name is Frank Garcia. I want to first begin by saying how humbled and honored I am to be a part of the amazing family here at Immanuel. This is my first year teaching at Immanuel and I absolutely love it! Working with the staff, parents, and most importantly these students has been such a joy. Music has always been a passion of mine and being a teacher at Immanuel has allowed me to fulfill my dream of teaching children about music within a Godly setting. Prior to teaching at Immanuel, I was a worship pastor for 15 years and had the pleasure of discipling many worship teams locally and internationally.
Before coming to Immanuel I taught K-8 music/choir at Valley Preparatory in Fresno for 8 years. During the summertime, I continue living my dream of teaching private lessons to musicians and vocalists throughout the valley. I play multiple instruments including the drums, piano, guitar, bass, and percussion. I am grateful to be able to impart my gifts and love for music to the students in the Elementary School, Junior High Choir, and Junior High Theatre at Immanuel this year. My prayer is that God will use me to ignite a passion for Jesus, and a desire to exalt His name through the gift of music.
This year my lovely wife Patrica and I along with my son Caleb were also blessed to be able to plant Revitalize Church in the heart of Downtown Fresno. Thank you for the opportunity to impart the gift of music into your child. I’m looking forward to meeting you, and to a wonderful school year.
