My name is John. I began my teaching career in 1994. I hold a professional teaching certificate from Florida with a K-12 Music endorsement. I graduated Mars Hill College with a Bachelors of Music degree in May 1994. I studied Tuba and Conducting. In 1997 I had the honor to be selected as a graduate assistant at Morehead State University in Morehead KY. While at Morehead State I had the privilege to study with two of the nation's top wind conductors. Through assisting the Marching Band, performing the string bass with the Wind Ensemble, directing the Concert Band and conducting the Basketball Bands, I obtained immeasurable experiences that have shaped me as a music educator. I have taught students at all levels from Kindergarten to college. I have experience with a plethora of diverse learning styles and teaching methods. I have adjudicated bands in Kentucky for State Contests. I firmly believe that music education should be both personally fun and musically rewarding for each student.
