About Mr. Roach

I started teaching band because my dad was a band director and an inspiration.  I graduated from East Central University of Oklahoma in December of 2003 and began teaching in Clute, Texas.  In 2007, I made my way to the mountains by moving to the Denver area and have been here ever since! 


Teaching at Stuart is an absolute blast!  The students here are incredibly encouraging and positive, which creates a perfect environment to experiment with sound and music while building great relationships.
