Welcome from Mr. Roble
I graduated from Greater Latrobe High School and went on to attend Penn State University where I earned a Bachelor’s of Music Education Degree with a concentration in Percussion. While at Penn State, I was in the percussion section of The Penn State Marching Blue Band for 4 years. I have also completed graduate coursework at St. Vincent college while working towards a Master’s degree in Curriculum & Instruction. I hold an Instructional II Certification for K-12 Music.
I teach many courses at both the Middle School and High School as well as lead extra-curricular activities. During the school day, I teach 6th Grade Band, 7th Grade Band, 8th Grade Band, General Music, High School Concert Band, High School Jazz Band, High School Guitar classes, and Music Theory. I am the Director of the Derry Area High School Marching Band, the Auditorium Coordinator for the district, Director of the Trojan Pep Band, and the Set Design and Construction Coordinator.
I was hired at Derry Area in 2013 to teach Music. Prior to being hired, I was a substitute teacher in both the Derry and Latrobe School Districts. Outside of school, I teach private percussion lessons and am an active performer. I perform in the Pit Orchestra for various school and community theater productions in the area. I am also a founding member of the Pittsburgh Steeline, the official drumline of the Pittsburgh Steelers. We perform at every home game and at various community parades and events in the Pittsburgh area.
