Rod Herrera


Mr. Herrera's Music Page

 I  attended Texas State University at San Marcos and earned a Bachelor's of Music Education degree.  While attending Texas State I performed in numerous ensembles.  I played snare drum and bass drum in Bobcat Marching band, and competed at PASIC in 1996 and 1998 placing 5th both times.  I also performed in the percussion ensemble, "Panorama Steel Drum Band", Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Orchestra.  I was also a performer at Sea World of Texas in the "Sounds of Steel" steel drum band, and have been a freelance percussionist throughout south central Texas.  I have also taught privately at many schools in south central Texas.  I have taught in Leander (north west Austin), New Braunfels, and Churchill High School here in San Antonio.  I love music and teaching music, it is the one language everyone can understand.

This is a performance based class.  During the fall is marching season, and we primarily focus on front ensemble, battery exercises and show music.  In the spring, we will focus on concert music as well as different percussion ensembles of varying size and styles of music.
