Spencer Crossing, Bentley and Martino Jr. High
Welcome to New Lenox Orchestra! I am Terry Khuu and I teach 5th-8th grade orchestra at Bentley, Spencer Crossing, and Martino Jr. High. Mr. Khuu is entering his second year of teaching at New Lenox School District and fourth year overall. Prior to coming to NLSD 122, Mr. Khuu taught gifted 7th-8th grade and 9th-12th grade orchestra at Lane Technical College Prep High School & LT Academic Center (Chicago, IL) for two years and coached varsity basketball (Lady Indians). Mr. Khuu then worked with the Wildcat Athletics at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL) managing the facility operations for various varsity sports. Mr. Khuu is an active member of the American String Teachers Association (ASTA) and National Association for Music Education (NAfME).
Mr. Khuu enjoys listening to all genres of music including: classical, jazz, indie-rock, pop, hip hop, electronic, and etc. Mr. Khuu plays on a very old cello made by M. Neuner & Hornsteiner from Mittenwald, Germany.
“ Music has long been called the "universal language." My goal is to bring out the talent and artistry from the students who have yet to discover these abilities. I encourage our students to take part in this musical experience, both to challenge them and to explore this diverse "universal language." By taking part in this celebration of music, students are opening up and are better able to recognize beauty, expression, and positive change in the world." - Mr. Khuu
