Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Robert Brings
My name is Rob Brings and I am the band director and general music teacher for Lake Hazel Middle School. I taught 3 years of elementary school general music and band before coming to Lake Hazel and I am thrilled to be working with secondary students. I'm from Boise. I attended Lowell Scott Middle School where Mr. Felton got me started on trumpet. I was privileged to play in bands directed by him, Sarah Frazier, Phil Hartman, Joe Tornello, Nathan Stark, John King, David Wells, and Marcellus Brown. It is now my pleasure to count many of my former teachers as colleagues and mentors.
I attended Boise State University where I played in the Symphonic Winds, Symphony Orchestra, All-Campus Concert Band and, of course, the Blue Thunder Marching Band. While at Boise State I studied horn under Dr. David Saunders. Horn continues to be my primary instrument and I play with the Treasure Valley Concert Band and a small brass group called the Silver Brass.
I look forward to many years at Lake Hazel Middle School where I hope to foster a band community that is truly Dedicated to Success.
