He received his Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from Baylor University. Apollo Junior High is a Title 1 school that represents a great deal of diversity and offers many challenges. Under Andrew's leadership, the Apollo band program has continued to grow and thrive. In particular, Andrew has made great strides in developing a very successful curriculum for the mixed beginner woodwind classes in the Berkner Area. Andrew's students also participate in full orchestra and a newly formed jazz band.
