Hello My Name Is...

Randall McMullen

My passion is motivating Band students to enjoy, have confidence, and exceed their own expectations both in music and in life. While teaching music, I incorporate life skills such as teamwork, responsibility, initiative, leadership, timeliness, and more. I have twenty-one years of experience as a high school and/or middle school Band director and/or Choir or music teacher. I am a Gulf War veteran. I have 22 years of experience as a musical trainer and performer/director/drum major in United States Army Bands in thirteen countries around the world. Three of my twenty-one years as a public school Band director were before my time in Army Bands, and eighteen years since my Army retirement. During my time in Army Bands, I substitute taught as a Band or Choir director at both high and middle public schools. I also have several years of experience as a church Choir director. I have had as many as 20 private music students from five counties at a time.

Mr. McMullen has a Marshall University bachelor’s degree in Music Education & over forty years of experience as a professional musician & educator. His Ohio & WV music education certifications are for Pre-K through adult, comprehensive. He has performed with the Huntington Symphony, Vaclav Nelhybel, Dizzy Gillespie, Maynard Ferguson, Clark Terry, Gary Burton, Rich Matteson, Phil Wilson, Paul Jennings (PEHS/PHS), and more.

I organized a 67-member community band and chorus in Columbus, Georgia. I recruited, trained, rehearsed, and directed this choral union at a patriotic performance attended by hundreds in summer of 1998. In spring of 1999, we performed a multi-media concert featuring music from children’s movies. I have taught as many as 20 private music lessons weekly to both children and adults. I teach all Band instruments (brass, woodwind, and percussion), piano, voice, music theory, and ear training. I have had private music students come to me from as many as five counties at a time. My school age students receive superior “I” ratings when competing at district solo and ensemble competitions in two states. They also audition for seats in district band receiving “chairs” ahead of both their peers and seniors.
