I have blessed to have the privilege to teach band at Oakland Middle School since the day it opened. We have a part time director, Mr. John Hearnes who has also been here since day one. He spends the remainder of his time at another middle school in Rutherford County. I have been teaching since 1991 throughout middle Tennessee in grades 6-12. Mr. Hearnes and I will do everything we can to make your child's experience one that will help them develop character and life skills through musical training. I also perform regularly in a variety of different groups and I lead the orchestra at Northside Baptist Church. I live happily in Murfreesboro with my wife and two awesome daughters.
