Degrees and Certifications:
Please contact me at Mr. Cherry for more information on the Concert and Marching Bands.
Mr. Cherry is a 15 year music teacher. He received his Bachelors of Science in Music Education from West Chester University. He chose teaching music becasue Music played a big part in his life as a child. Music was his creative outlet and what he turned to not only in times of joy but also in times of stress. His high school band was the thing he enjoyed the most as a student. The band achieved great things and the members formed lifelong friendships. He chose to be a teacher (specifically a band director) so that he could “pass it forward’ and provide students with the same opportunities that he had.
An interesting fact about Mr. Cherry is that he loves classic cars. He still has his Camaro that he bought back when he was back in High School 30 years ago.
His favorite thing about teaching is the look on a student’s face when they finally get a concept. Also, when students are excited about what they’ve learned and want to show their work off to the world because they’re so proud of it.
Mr. Cherry's advice to graduating seniors is this: 'Always strive to be the best person you can be. As the writer C.S. Lewis famously said, “Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.”'
