ZACHARY MILLER

BAND / ORCHESTRA DIRECTOR

I am excited to get the new school year started off in the Pioneer Pathways as a Band Director. One thing I love about the music world is that it is a multi-disciplinary art that challenges students on many levels at the same time. I am looking forward to seeing the growth and development of our young musicians and to see their love of music expand.

ANTHONY SICORA

PHY ED / HEALTH EDUCATOR

I have been teaching for two years and I love working with students. I want all students to have fun in my class and enjoy exercise as much as I do.


PRESTON WEBER

BAND / ORCHESTRA DIRECTOR

As both an Orchestra/Band Director at Hill-Murray School and Pioneer Pathways, I love the opportunity to make music with students of all ages. The collaborative effort of performing in a band, plus the discipline and precision necessary for playing each instrument, make musical performance such a rewarding and fulfilling experience. Making music is great for the mind, body, and soul - and a more musical world is a better world.
