A little about me.....
I was born in Fort Riley, KS where my father retired as a Command Sergeant Major. After graduating from Junction City High School I earned my Instrumental Music Education Degree from the Conservatory of Music at the University of Missouri-KC in 1994. My first teaching position was 6-12 band in Iola, Kansas where I also conducted the Iola Municipal Band. In 1998 I moved to Lawrence and began at South Jr. High. During that time period I was a member of the 312th Army Reserve Band as a trumpet player and conductor at the rank of Sergeant. I am now performing with the DeSoto Brass Band, The Lawrence City Band and perform/conduct with the Junction City Community Band.
I am married to Paige Robinson who is the Librarian at Broken Arrow Elementary School. We have three daughters; Ashley Smith who is the Principal at Teddy Roosevelt Elementary School in Manhattan, KS. Lynn Hobbs who lives in Texas and is finishing a construction management degree and Megan Robinson who is at Kansas State pursuing a music degree.
Teaching has been a tradition in my family. Both of my grandparents were teachers in Illinois. My sister retired from Fredonia, KS as a PE teacher and my brother is a tennis professional in Norman, Oklahoma.
I have been teaching for almost 30 years and for me, one of the best things about being a band director is teaching beginning band. We start by not knowing how to open the instrument case and within a few months we give a concert! It is real treat to continue to have the beginners as 7th and 8th graders. It is very rewarding to be able to see the students advance throughout their time at Billy Mills Middle School.
