Degrees and Certifications:
I’m the newest band director here at DuBose, and it’s my fifteenth year of teaching instrumental music. Prior to my appointment at DuBose, I taught middle school band and percussion in Georgia for fourteen years. My band students earned Superior ratings at CPA and Solo and Ensemble, and my percussion students won the Georgia Indoor Percussion Association Championship in 2019.
I love teaching middle school band kids! To me, they are the most interesting and talented students in the building. I really enjoy teaching them how to play their instruments and seeing them “take-off” with their newly-found talents when they go to high school.
When I’m not teaching, I’m usually reading or working on other projects. The latest project is co-authoring the Habits of a Successful Middle School Musician book series that we use here at DuBose. I also write and arrange percussion music for marching bands, and I probably drink too much coffee.
I earned my bachelor’s degree in Music Education from the University of Georgia in 2005, and I just finished my master’s degree in Music Education from The University of North Texas this summer.
My wife and I live in Summerville with our dog, two cats, and lots of coffee.
