       We pride ourselves in having a very unique instructional staff.  These wonderful people all come from music or educational backgrounds with extensive drum majoring, support marching band staff, college leadership, and director positions. 

       Perhaps more importantly is the work they do outside of the music environment for their communities.  Their backgrounds range from volunteer youth leaders, to firefighters and police officers, to teachers, college students, college coaches, and martial arts instructors. 

       Every year, we come together to share those passions with our students and how music and leadership helped nurture our involvement in the community.
Kacie Stansfield - Color Guard Camp Director

     Kacie has been involved in the color guard activity for 18 years as both a performer and teacher and has loved every minute of it. After graduating from LVHS she went to RCC in 2001. There she had the opportunity to learn from the best in the business Karl Lowe and TJ Doucette and many more. During those first few years she served on the staff of several band programs including Sierra Vista HS, Las Vegas HS, and American Fork HS. She also spent time studying dance and performance at private studios and college campuses.
     She moved to Utah in 2009 and worked with the regional BOA finalist Mountain Crest HS band program. While there she was a part of the visual staff as well as the head guard instructor. Her experience and knowledge helped that guard promote up two divisions and be very competitive there. She has been responsible for bringing many guards in Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah much success within their own circuits.     Kacie currently lives in Albuquerque with her husband Marcus and their 3 children.
