Mr. Josh Bohl
Welcome to the Ashley Ridge High School Percussion Program! I am Mr. Bohl, the Percussion Director here at ARHS. I am from Summerville, SC and a 2009 graduate of Summerville High School. I received my undergraduate degree in Percussion Performance, graduating cum laude, from Charleston University in 2015 and my Master of Music degree from the University of Oklahoma in 2017. Prior to teaching at ARHS, I was a Percussion Director in Oklahoma City and have been a percussion technician with several award winning marching bands/percussion ensembles throughout the Oklahoma City area and the Lowcountry here in SC. I have also been the percussion instructor for the Charleston Southern Summer Music camp since the summer of 2016. Outside of teaching, I am a professional percussionist. I currently perform with the Charleston Wind Symphony and freelance around the Charleston area. I have performed several times in the Piccolo Spoleto Festival of Charleston, SC, played with the Long Bay Symphony in Myrtle Beach, SC, performed at the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC as principal percussionist of the 2015 National Christian Honor Band, have performed at the National Conference on Percussion Pedagogy, and marched WGI in 2010 with Palmetto Percussion. Ouside of school, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Emily and our pets. This is my first year at ARHS and I am extremely excited ot build the percussion program and promote a culture of family and excellence.
