Mr. Estes' Background

I moved to Round Rock when I was 4 years old.  Graduated from Round Rock High School in 1994.  After graduation I enrolled at Texas Tech University and received my Bachelor's degree in Music Education.  During my time in Lubbock, I taught the drumline at Denver City HS for several years. 

After graduation, I accepted my first teaching position in Princeton MS/HS.  I taught the high school marching band (primarily drumline), 2nd band at the MS, and beginner Percussion, French Horn, and Flute.
After Princeton, I taught at Aledo HS for 2 years.  During my time at Aledo, I instructed the high school marching band, the 3rd concert band at HS, and beginner Percussion, Oboe, and Bassoon.
After Aledo, I taught at Kennedale HS for 7 years.  I instructed the HS drumline, marching band, 2nd concert band and beginner Flute, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Saxophone, French Horn, Baritone, and Percussion.
I have been very fortunate to be a part of programs that have all been to the State Marching Band Contest.  In 2011, I had to make a hard decision to leave Kennedale ISD and move to the Austin area.  Since my entire family lives in the Austin area, it made the decision a little easier.   
I look forward to contributing and sharing my knowledge and experience with Thrall ISD.  Thrall students are very courteous, respectful and eager.  It has certainly been a great experience thus far with many more years to come.
