Hello! My name is Brian Weese. I have been the music teacher here at Walker Park since July of 2009. Each year I am very excited about working with your children to learn to play, create and appreciate music.
I married my wonderful wife, Sonya, in 1991 and have 5 wonderful kids, the youngest being adopted from Ukraine. Because my Dad was in the Air Force we traveled around a little bit and I was born in Hawaii! So far I have lived in 8 states and traveled to Mexico, Japan, and Ukraine.
I taught at the high school level in Arizona and the elementary school level here in Georgia (Gwinnett County) before teaching in Walton County. I have led the music at 2 churches, one in Kentucky for 2 years while attending seminary and the other in Ohio for 4 1/2 years after getting my Masters in Church Music degree.
I have published 6 music worksheet type books (all published by Lorenz Music Company) full of music games and puzzles designed to help reinforce musical concepts for elementary age students. I also collaborated with Lorenz Music Company to produce an Interactive White Board program for PCs and Macs. I currently have 2 more books "in the works". Here is a link to one of my latest books: http://www.lorenz.com/product.aspx?id=30_2805H
I have also led music at several churches and arranged music for various ensembles. I love to sing and play instruments; I play most brass instruments, but my main instrument is the trombone.
I love making homemade pizza with my kids. I am also an avid Science Fiction reader and movie-goer. I also love to play games with my family.
I hope to get to know you more throughout this school year!
Let's have some music fun!
