Mr. Brian Hix
Welcome everyone to a new school year!
This is my second year teaching here at West Wing in the Deer Valley Unified School District. My goal is to excite students about music, and to foster the development of long lasting skills for instrumental music through the Mustang Band program. The program allows students to enjoy the ability to create and perform, while also developing long-lasting friendships and skills that allow for success across academic areas.
I received my bachelor's degree in Music Education in 2015 from California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California. Prior to teaching at West Wing, I taught three years of elementary through high school band in the Kellogg Joint School District in Kellogg, Idaho. I am primarilly a saxophone player and studied under Dr. Daniel Geeting at CLU. I also love to sing, and have been a regular participant in several church choirs. During my time in Idaho I performed with the North Idaho College Wind Symphony.
Beyond the classroom, I enjoy hiking and other outdoor activities and have previously served as a camp counselor and summer camp director both in Oregon and California. Many of the activities and skills I learned through those positions have guided my teaching.
