Joining Brookland School District this year as our second assistant band director and percussion specialist is Mr. Jesse Lyons. Mr. Lyons graduated with a Bachelor of Music Education from Arkansas State University in the Spring of 2021. During his time at Arkansas State, Mr. Lyons served as the drumline percussion captain for four years, and Principal Percussionist for the Arkansas State Wind Ensemble. Mr. Lyons was also a dedicated member of the Arkansas State University Percussion Ensemble.
Mr. Lyons was able to cultivate a private lesson studio of students ranging from 8th grade to 12th grade throughout his time at A-State. Mr. Lyons also worked with Greene County Tech as a percussion instructor from 2016 to 2020, where the students earned several superior percussion ratings. Mr. Lyons also had the opportunity to work with The Roar drumline in 2018.
Mr. Lyons currently lives in Paragould, Arkansas. He enjoys movies, video games, and the outdoors. His favorite food group is coffee, but he says he can drink water during summer band! Most of all, he enjoys actively listening to music in his free time. Mr. Lyons is thrilled to begin working with the music faculty to offer quality music education to the students of Brookland.
