Joshua Teague


Joshua is a senior in high school, with a concentration in saxophone at Duke Ellington School of the Arts in Washington, DC. He has been afforded the opportunity to study under the tutelage of renowned saxophonist Davey Yarborough, but Joshua’s father first taught him to play when he was eleven years old. He developed an instant love for the instrument. Although he loves playing and listening to all types of music, jazz is his favorite. Joshua was selected to be a part of the DCPS Study Abroad Program where he did a language immersion program in Nice, France. He is a member of the National Honor Society, the New Washingtonians, and a member of the summer internship by the Washington Arts Institute. He is the drum major for the school’s marching band, “The Radical Elite Show Band”. He also serves as a school ambassador. Joshua has recently been awarded a tuition scholarship from the Posse Foundation to attend the University Of Rochester this fall where he plans to pursue a major in Physics/Optics and a minor in Music Performance. Joshua currently resides with his parents and two brothers in Chantilly, Virginia.
