Welcome to the Webpage for the Bunker Hill Middle School Band program. I am excited to be the new band director here at BHMS. I am entering my 26th year of teaching music with this year being my 20th year in WTPS. I come to the program with over 40 years of experience playing the clarinet, flute, and saxophone(I am including all my years playing since I was 9 years old in fourth grade). I have been the principal clarinetist with the Philharmonic of Southern New Jersey (PSNJ) for over 25 years. The PSNJ is an all-volunteer orchestra which performs four concerts a year at the Eastern Center for the Performing Arts in Voorhees, NJ. I have been giving private instrumental lessons to students in the South Jersey Area for the past 30 years. I have helped students gain acceptance into local, regional, and state honors bands and orchestras. I have also helped students gain acceptance into colleges and universities where they studied to be music educators, instrumental performers, composers, and music historians. I am looking forward to a rewarding year of making music with the students of BHMS.
