About Mark

I have given private lessons for years and have had many all region and all state students in the past. I have numerous band contacts in the state and many of my students have earned music scholarships. I passed the middle school math Praxis exam recently and just have 2 online courses to get my certification.

I made the Arkansas all state band in the spring of 1983 and earned a full tuition scholarship to Arkansas Tech in the fall of 1983 and graduated in December of 1987 with a degree in music education with honors.

I was the junior high band director at Harrison, Ar from January 1988 to June 1996, moved to Dumas and was Jr band director the from 1996-1998 and then was band director at Valley Springs from 1998-2004. I then moved to Booneville, Ar as an administrator before retirement in Heber Springs.

As mentioned above, I recently passed the middle school math Praxis (teacher) exam.

I was an all state trumpet player in high school and a full scholarship trumpet student at Arkansas Tech and spent 2 years as 2nd chair (Jr and Sr years). I was a band director for 16 1/2 years.

I'm very familiar with the Arkansas all region audition Jr. and Sr high music and taught it for years. I've actually had more clarinet and flute students make all state than other instruments. I've helped many students set up auditions with universities in the state.
