Welcome to Mr. Otake's page! Hello! My name is Topher Otake, and I am teaching Vocal Music this year at West Middle School! I started my musical journey where I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. I later spent some time living in Indiana before moving to Columbia to begin my studies at the University of Missouri. I believe that music connects us as human beings, and can be a force in the world that brings us together. I'm looking forward to sharing the power of music with all of my fellow Vikings!
