Mr. Brett Kelley
Director of Bands and Choral Activities
Onalaska Independent School District
Mr. Brett Kelley received his Bachelor of Instrumental Music Education from Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, Arkansas (2017). He comes from a position at Paris Middle School in Paris, AR as the Junior High Band Director and Assistant High School Band Director. During the summers, he has worked at Russellville's City Pool, where he was the Pool Manager/Head Lifeguard for seven years.
His professional affiliations include Texas Music Educators Association, Texas Bandmaster's Association, Young Band Directors of Texas, Arkansas Music Educators Association, Arkansas Bandmasters Association, Arkansas School Band and Orchestra Association, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.
Brett and his wife, Abigail, live and breathe music, in the form of performing, listening, writing, and attending live performances. Abigail is attending Sam Houston this fall to pursue a master's degree in Flute Performance.
His primary instrument of study is clarinet, but he has a real passion for performing on bass, jazz and classical. In his life outside of music, Brett enjoys playing golf, both regular and disc, and watching The Office. They have three crazy cats- Olive, Scout, and Jem.
I am thrilled to be in Onalaska! My wife and I are new to Texas, so we are very excited to get to know the area and to start making music with the young musicians at Onalaska JSHS.
