Tim Griffin

Griffin Education (GriffinEd)
executive director, lead educator/performer
La Cañada, CA
Tim Griffin is an award-winning educator, singer/songwriter, and storyteller with a passion for making learning fun. After retiring from the Los Angeles Unified School District, Tim now runs a small educational nonprofit called GriffinEd (www.GriffinEd.org), a team of musicians and teachers dedicated to raising achievement in science, math, history, and other subjects through fun educational music. Think “Schoolhouse Rock” and you’re getting warm. Data shows measurable academic gains for kids working with Tim’s music for five minutes a day, but don’t tell the kids that: you might spoil the fun. Because GriffinEd is funded mainly by grants and donations, all of of Tim’s work (live shows, songwriting workshops, GriffinEd’s online library of fun teaching songs, etc.) is offered to schools and other places of learning regardless of ability to pay.

Tim’s work has been featured by the California Science Teachers’ Association, the National Science Teachers’ Association, Mensa, the World Science Fiction Convention, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science; his music has won three Pegasus Awards, including Best Composer and Best Song. Tim has published four albums of fun, mostly educational music, with a fifth coming soon. Find it at www.GriffinEd.org; it’s fun, it’s free, and it no-kidding works.
