Hello, my name is Steven B. Edwards and I am Director of Instrumental Studies at Falmouth High School. Although I am new to FHS, I have been teaching music in public school systems for the past ten years in Connecticut. I have been director of award-winning Concert Bands, Jazz Bands and Marching Bands for the Ellington Public School System, Granby Memorial High School, Norwich Free Academy and now Falmouth High School.
I have always felt strongly about being active in my professional affiliations and associations to further support music in our schools state wide. I have held various state positions such as Connecticut Music Education Association(CMEA) Eastern Region Director and Executive Board member, CMEA Student Affairs Board member, CMEA Eastern Region Jazz Band Chair, CMEA Eastern Region Audition Festival Site Chair, North Central Connecticut Conference (NCCC)Band Chair, NCCC Site Chair, Beginning Educator State Training(B.E.S.T.) Mentor since 2000 / B.E.S.T. Portfolio Scorer in 2001, Ellington Education Association Peer Coach, Cooperating Teacher in association with the HARTT School of Music, University of Connecticut and Central Connecticut State University.
My wife and I moved to Falmouth with our son in 2006 and truly enjoy the community and beautiful scenery. It is a pleasure to know and work with Falmouth’s young musicians and I look forward to making great music with them.
