About CHRIS HENRY

I have been playing trumpet for about twenty-five years.  I came to Greensboro in 1998 to attend Greensboro College as a music education major.  While at Greensboro, I had Anita Cirba and Ken Wilmot as my trumpet teachers.  I also worked with Benji Springs in his role as band director.  While in college I had the opportunity to start the band program at a charter school in Rockingham County.  I have taught in Guilford County for fifteen years at Northeast Middle School and am currently the band and orchestra director at Jamestown Middle School.  I have had a private studio for about ten years in the Jamestown area.  I perform weekly with the praise and worship band, Decided, at Jamestown Presbyterian Church, where I play guitar, bass, and of course, trumpet.   I have worked with The Ragsdale High School Marching Tigers for about seventeen years as music tech, brass tech, drill/show designer, and composer/arranger.  My wife, Elena, and I have three daughters, one each in middle, high school, and college.  I am excited about the opportunity I have teaching at Music & Arts!
