Welcome to Life High School Waxahachie Music Program


Let me introduce myself as the choir and band director. I consider it a wonderful opportunity to teach at Life High School Waxahachie. I am looking forward to working with you this year. I believe we are on a journey together at this time in your student’s life to develop them as leaders with character and a strong musical experience.


I have a Masters in Music Education from University of Colorado, a Masters in Communication and a Ph D both from Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA.  My dissertation title is: Lived Experiences, Televangelism, and American Media:  Lessons Learned from Individuals’ Reflections and Media Accounts about the PTL Scandal. This topic is a very interesting study because of popular culture.


I have taught at Life Schools since 2011.  I play piano, clarinet, and mallets, and love conducting. My teaching career started in Lakeland, Florida in 1985I have worked in communication arts, television production, drama, and music departments in university and church settings. At one point I did summer work at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. . I have been a minister of music, media and drama for over 20 years.


I am blessed with a wonderful wife, Claudia, three daughters and a son, three sons-in-law, a daughter-in-law and five grandchildren.
