Mr. David Farmer



- Lets Go Band! -


My name is Mr. Farmer and this will be my 6th year teaching at Horace Mann Middle School!

I'm very excited to be your 7th-8th grade Band Director, and look forward to continuing this program's history of excellence! We will be striving to continuously achieve a high level of musicianship in band, and I know how high achieving our students can and will be!

I am native to the great state of Wisconsin, and grew up in the Southeastern portion of the state. I went to college at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. There I studied Music Education, and earned my Bachelor's of Music in Instrumental and General Education.


*You will find my schedule attached to this profile when complete. I am available to help students before school and afterschool on afternoons when I'm not in meetings or running jazz rehearsal. Students can also stop down during their resource period, or lunch (if provided a lunch pass).
