Mr. Brooks - High School Chorus, Guitar, Piano, Electives, Musical
It is great to have you in class, in an ensemble, musical, or just to have you pass by my page. Here is a little bit about me: I graduated from Bradford Area High School in 2002 and then attended Mansfield University, earning a Bachelor of Education in Music Education with elective studies in jazz in 2006. Throughout high school and college, I was in the marching band, chorus, musicals, wind ensemble, orchestra; basically any musical ensemble I could be in. I love to play and sing!
I attained a Master of Arts in Music Education from Mansfield University in 2015. Professionally, I have taught in three school districts; Punxsutawney, Cameron County, and St. Marys and this is my 13th year teaching and have seen students in K-6 and 9-12. I am currently the St. Marys Area High School Choral Director and teach guitar, piano, and music electives. I thoroughly enjoy the great amount of fun we have in the music department and I wish that all students could have the opportunity to take a music class.
I am a firm believer in creating opportunities for students that they can enjoy. Each year, I strive to come up with fun, new ideas for the music department. I enjoy playing soccer, tennis, mountain biking, and running. I live in St. Marys with my wonderful wife, Michelle, and three children, Ela, Alison, and Jamie.
