Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Dustin Hensley, I am the music and Adventures director at Wakefield Elementary. I hold a Masters degree in Educational Leadership and a Bachelors in music with a minor in business from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Before I began teaching elementary I taught middle school band in Waco TX. Although I specialize in brass, in elementary music class I demonstrate many different types of instruments from all of the instrument families. Students participate in vocal as well as instrumental performance through singing and playing percussion, string, and woodwind instruments. I believe all students should have the opportunity to experience music here at Wakefield. Hopefully through these experiences students will develop a desire to join band, choir, or orchestra in the future or at the very least have an appreciation of music. Aside from being the music director at Wakefield, I am also the director for the Adventures After School program. I look forward to a continuing to serve you as the music director for Wakefield and will always put our students first.
