Taggart is a 2011 graduate of Page High School and 2016 graduate of Austin Peay State University, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in music education.
Before joining HHS, he taught K-4 general music, fifth grade choir and sixth grade beginning band at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School in Hopkinsville, Ky.
The title of this year’s show at HHS is “Mysteries of the Nile.”
“My main goal for the season is to begin to instill a sense of pride in the students, both in the band and in the stands,” Taggart said. “I hope to bring new energy and excitement to the band, and have that excitement transfer to the sound of the band.”
Taggart wants the school and community to know that this year the band will be working to help bring a new energy, excitement and pride to HHS.
