Welcome to the River Oaks Middle School Steel Band Program! I am Mr. Talbert, the Director of the River Oaks MS Steel Band Program. I am from Ninety Six, South Carolina, and a 2007 graduate of Ninety Six High School. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of South Carolina in 2011. I started teaching steel band in the Dorchester 2 School District in 2013. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Tyra, my daughter, Addison, and my boxer dog, KJ. This is my 7th year at ROMS, and I am looking forward to another fantastic year!
