Welcome to the King’s Regiment
I direct the Kountze H.S. Band (The King’s Regiment) and oversee the music programs at KISD. I am glad to be teaching at a small school where students can be involved in many activities.
We expect all of our students to be prepared, be respectful to others, listen and apply what they hear to the best of their ability. I encourage my students to work extremely hard and proficiently while I have them and to take their instrument home, in case they have time to practice.
