WELCOME TO MY MARCHING PERCUSSION PAGE

This portion of my web site is dedicated to my musical side. My experience with Marching Percussion goes back to my 8th Grade year when I attended Newton-Conover Middle School. While in Middle School, the then High School Band Director Jim Stockner, selected certain students to assist the Newton-Conover High School Marching Red Devil Band as Band Managers and fortunately I was one of those chosen few. As a band manager, I worked hand-in-hand with the Drumline. Basically, I was a "roadie" so to speak. Prior to starting High School, a friend of the family introduced me to DCI (Drum Corps International) back in the summer of 1989. My 9th grade year I marched 3rd Bass Drum out of 4 Bass Drums. The remaining years in high school at Newton I played Snare. My 11th Grade year I was the Snare Section Leader. After High School, I then went on to Appalachian State University where I marched as a member of theMarching Mountaineers in 1996.

To be honest, I love teaching Marching Percussion just as much as playing it. I have been teaching Marching Percussion since 1990. I was a Freshman in high school when I started teaching. I was an assistant to my former high school band director , Jim Stockner, who by the way, is quite the accomplished percussionist! Anyway, through the years teaching with him, I have gained a great insight as to what teaching, especially in music, is all about. To him, I owe a great deal! I am formerly a Percussion Intructor for Newton-Conover High School (My Old School). High Schools I have worked with in the past include: Bandys HS, Albemarle HS; West, East, and South Rowan High Schools, A.L. Brown , Maiden HS, and West Iredell HS.

It has taken forever to get to, but I am currently in the process of updating my site. Thanks for dropping by!!!!!!
