My name is Mr. Wagner and I am proud to be a music teacher in the River View district! I began teaching in the district in 2006. My responsibilities include teaching Jr. High Band, 7th Grade Guitar Class, 8th Grade Handbell Ensemble, and to work with Mr. Watson and the River View Black Bear Marching Band as assistant director. Beginning in the 2020 school year, I will also be responsible for teaching elementary music students at Keene Elementary School.
I am a graduate of Fairless High School in Navarre, Ohio, and Mount Vernon Nazarene University. I also had a great opportunity to learn from many great Ohio State University professors as part of their summer Masters in Music Education program.
My wife, Mrs. Wagner, is a school teacher at West Muskingum High School. We live in Warsaw, and take care of a large aquarium full of tropical fish at our home. We also have a razorback musk turtle, named Harold, which I received as a Christmas gift from my sister!
I appreciate and enjoy most kinds of music. One of my favorite types is movie soundtrack music. Can you imagine what your favorite movie would sound like without music? Click the play button below and see if you can figure our what movie this song is from.
