Elementary Band Director at Indian Lane and Rose Tree

I am the band director at Rose Tree Elementary School and Indian Lane Elementary School. I teach at Rose Tree Elementary every morning and at Indian Lane Elementary every afternoon.  

I received Bachelors of Music in Jazz Guitar from Temple University.  After graduation, I immediately went on to get my teaching certificate from West Chester University.  I have always been interested in the way technology and music work together.  That interest led me to Indiana University - Perdue University Indianapolis.  They were one of the first universities in the country to offer a Masters in Music Technology.  I have been happily teaching elementary band in the Rose Tree Media SD since 2002.  

I live in Havertown with my wife, Michele and my two children, Jimmy (12) and Katie (8). When I am not teaching, I enjoy coaching baseball and softball, flag football, playing in rock bands, golf, home remodeling, and building RC cars and model rockets with my kids.  I am also an avid Philly sports fan. 

If you have ever been to a flyers game you will hear one of my songs called "The Orange and the Black" being played after a victory.  My brother and I cowrote the song. I sing backup vocals, play guitar, acoustic guitar, and accordion on the recording.  No, I am not a good accordion player...it is one of the hardest instruments I have ever played...but I made it work for the recording!  :-)
