- Mr. Eric T. Peterson:  (epeterson@lwsd.org)  I have taught bands, beginners through high school, for 27 years.  My Masters is in conducting.  As a performer, athlete, and pilot, I know the value of hard work and long-term goal setting.  I enjoy sharing the joy of learning a new skill and watching the developing confidence of beginners as they learn their instruments.  I look forward to getting to know each new Bander!

-Mr. Ryan Beise: (rbeise@lwsd.org)  I am in my 7th year of teaching with lots of musical experience.  I have been involved in teaching and performing music for over 25 years.  I understand the importance of skill building, being open to learning new things, and still find fun in music constantly.  I am really looking forward to working with our beginning band students and watching them learn and grow in the musicianship.
