    Some information about Mr. Schmitz:
    Before coming to St. Louis Park in 2011, I taught four years of junior high school band in Shakopee. I also taught middle school band and elementary music in Virginia for three years and in Prior Lake for one year. On the side, I was the assistant director of the Shakopee High School Marching Sabers for two years, worked at various summer marching band camps and taught 9-12 summer school advanced music classes. In my free time, I play in my church’s rock band and an adult community band, explore new restaurants, go to movies, bike, camp, travel and spend time with my family and dogs.

    Again, I welcome you to a new year in the St. Louis Park Band program. There are many exciting things in the works for the year!
