TWP CHOIR MISSION: 
TWP Choir provides students with the opportunity to discover more about music, their voices, and themselves through relevant and rigorous musical experiences.  We firmly believe that a comprehensive music education brings out the absolute best in every student.  Members of TWP Choir will immerse themselves in understanding proper vocal technique, music theory, history, ear training, critique, and performance skills.  Students will develop a lifelong love and appreciation of music through practice and performance of diverse musical styles in a wide range of performance settings.
 
About Mr. Zachowski:
Hello!  My name is Joseph Zachowski, Director of Choral Activities at Washington Township HS.  A native of TWP, I grew up in the Old Birches and attended Birches Elementary and Orchard Valley Middle School.  After graduating from WTHS in 2000, I studied at The College of New Jersey.  In 2004, I graduated from TCNJ with a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, majoring in both trumpet and voice.  For the first 9 years of my career, I was the Choral Director at Orchard Valley Middle School, and for 3 of those years was also the Choral Director at Chestnut Ridge Middle School.  I am honored to teach at my alma mater, and plan to continue the great choral traditions at WTHS of previous directors Mr. Button, Mr. VanAntwerp, and Mr. Corigliano.  I have also recently completed a masters degree in School Administration through Rowan University.
 
I live with my wife Melissa and our son Johnny in West Deptford, NJ.  Outside of WTHS, I perform regularly with regional cover band 39 Mariner and teach private voice and trumpet lessons.
