Welcome to the Tulare Union High School Music Department Website.  I would like to welcome back all our returning students and want to send a special welcome to all our new students and their families.  As a member of our program, your student is about to embark on an exciting journey that will provide you with many musical and character building opportunities, performance thrills, and long-lasting friendships. From this point on, you are no longer just an individual but a member of our band, drumline, front ensemble and color guard family. As your director, I am committed to the continuing betterment and success of the program, and I expect each and every one of you to strive for the same goal. We all have to work together as a team. Success only occurs when we are all dedicated, committed and cooperative between one another. This includes students, parents, administration, the community, and myself.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.  The best way to contact me is by email.  There are two ways to do so: email me at or at the top of the page you can fill out the contact form.

I am looking forward to making 2022-2023 the best year I possibly can for the students. I urge everyone to have and maintain a positive attitude in order to have a great school year.
