Hi! I'm Mr. Brian Rhodes and I'm the Director of Bands here at Booneville Schools. My wife, Mrs. Angela Rhodes is also a band director here and I have 2 kids, TJ and Aaron. TJ and Aaron love to play music with us. They also love video games and generally not being bored.
My hometown is Rison, AR, where I was in the band, etc. I've been involved in music all my life. Currently, this is my 24th year as a band director.... wow .. :-)
In addition to my band directing responsibilities, I try to stay active as a performer and composer. I also enjoy playing keyboards in my church (Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic Church).
As a performer, I have played saxophone and piano with several groups over the years, including The Four Tops, Wayne Newton, Steve Lippia, Harry James Orchestra & The Temptations. For 9 years, I was the lead alto sax player with the Texarkana Jazz Orchestra.
As an educator, I was the band director in Smackover, AR for 9 years. After that, I was one of the band directors at Paris, TX (specifically Paris Junior High) for 9 years. This is my 6th year here at Booneville and have no plans of leaving any time soon!
