Music is God's gift to man, the only art of Heaven given to earth, the only art of earth we take to Heaven.

About Me

Hi, I'm Richard Flores, Educational Representative for the Round Rock, Pflugerville, and Leander area.  I've lived in Central Texas all my life, having graduated from Taylor High School and Blinn College, also attending the University of Texas at Austin.  My musical journey started in the 7th grade, playing the trumpet.  We were not a large community, and had one band director with no assistant for the whole town.  There were no private lessons at that time, so it's amazing we ever learned to play at all!   In spite of that, I made Region Band in high school and went to Blinn College on a band scholarship.  After that, I transferred to UT as a Music Ed major and played in the Longhorn Band, probably the most exciting time of my life at that point.  Shortly after that I met my future wilfe, had to work to pay for school, and found that I enjoyed being in an ensemble more than music theory and composition.  I got married, started a family, and set aside my passion for music for a while.  When my son was old enough to join band, I urged him to play trumpet, and I started playing again.  It was so much fun watching him progress, improve, and going to the football games.  After working in the retail world for many years, I had the opportunity to join Music & Arts.  It's been a dream come true, applying what I've learned in various fields and experiences to help young people discover what could be a life-long passion for music.  My job as I see it is to be a dependable resource for those who teach music, so they can inspire others.
