Like many of our students, Abraham Garcia began band in the 5th grade where he learned to play the trumpet. He continued playing throughout his time at Arizona State University, graduating with a B.M. degree in Music Education. The 2016-2017 school year is Mr. Garcia’s second year at Kerr Elementary. Although the trumpet is his main instrument, Mr. Garcia loves playing all of the band and general music instruments.
When he is not in the classroom, Mr. Garcia can be found teaching high school marching bands around the valley. He spends his summers teaching members of Drum Corps International where he tours the country, educating musicians who perform for thousands of fans every summer.
“In the end the great truth will have been learned that the quest is greater than what is sought, the effort finer than the prize (or rather, that the effort is the prize), the victory cheap and hollow were it not for the rigor of the game.”
-Supreme Court Justice Benjamin Cardozo
