Mr. Andy Farmer

It is an absolute pleasure to be the Band Director for Aspen School District for grades 5-12. My teaching repsonsibilities at the middle school include 5th grade Beginning Band, 6th grade intermediate Band, 7th/8th grade Advanced Band, and Jazz Band. In addition, I teach high school Concert Band and Advanced Jazz Ensemble along with leading the Pep Band and Jazz Ensemble. I began my music teaching career in 2014 in Louisiana then came to Aspen to begin as the new Band Director in 2018. I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and attended college at Louisiana State University, graduating with degrees in Instrumental Music Education and Philosophy. I live and teach with my partner, who is also an Aspen Middle School teacher, along with our dog, Daisy.
