Mr. Joe Garcia

I am the Orchestra Director at Sugar Land Middle School.  I received a Bachelors of Music with Teacher Certification from Texas Tech University and graduated magna cum laude in the Fall of 2012. I began playing violin at the age of ten. My former violin teachers include Barbara Allen, Kirsten Yon, and Annie Chalex-Boyle.  At Texas Tech, I was also part of the Texas Tech String Project, an after school program for 4th and 5th grade string players. I served as a section coach for the University String Orchestra and was part of the University Symphony Orchestra, Tzumba: World Music Ensemble, and the Texas Tech Mariachi Ensemble. During the summer, I have also been part of the Texas Tech University Band and Orchestra camp as a camp counselor and librarian. In my spare time, I enjoy arts and crafts, Crossfit, and traveling
