Mr. Mike Greer
Welcome to the DuBose Middle School Steel Band Program! I am Mr. Greer, the Director of the DMS Steel Band Program. I am from a small town in Kentucky, and a 1995 graduate of Hart County High School. I received my undergraduate degree from the Eastern Kentucky University in 2001, my Master of Music in Percussion Performance degree from Miami University in 2003, and my Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Eastern Kentucky University in 2005. I started teaching band at DMS in 2005 and started the DMS Steel Band in the Spring of 2006. In the last 13 years, this program has grown to be the largest middle school steel band program in the country! Along with being an educator, I am also a professional musician. I play drums for the Ashley Ridge Church worship team, and am also the principal timpanist for the North Charleston Pops Orchestra. Having lived in Europe, my wife and I love to travel outside of the country and get to know as much as we can about the music of other cultures. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Kara, and our three children: Sydney, Lauren, and David. We enjoy running races from 5k’s all the way up to multi-day expeditions. This is my 14th year at DMS, and I am looking forward to another fantastic year here!
