James Austin

I grew up in Apple Valley, Minnesota and decided to continue my education in Kansas after I graduated from high school. I have just graduated from the University of Kansas with a Bachelor's degree in Music Education. While at KU, I played with the University of Kansas Wind Ensemble, and as a member of the ensemble I recorded two CD's under the direction of Dr. Paul Popiel. I also played with the University's jazz ensembles and combos, the pit orchestra for the musical productions, and I became one of the three drum majors for the Marching Jayhawks. In 2013 I enlisted into the army reserves and I am now a Specialist in the 312th army reserve band. Through these organizations I have had the opportunities to perform all over Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, Oklahoma, and Texas. I am now in my second year of teaching in Oberlin
