Director of Bands & Orchestras
Patrick has been with Hinsdale South since the summer of 2009 and has continued to build on the excellent tradition that has been the Hinsdale South Band program.
“We must teach music because it is the universal language. It is unique and diverse. Teachers are responsible for educating the entire person and music is an essential element to human nature. By teaching music we are developing the very essence of what makes us human beings.”
Patrick teaches Concert Band, Chamber Orchestra, Symphonic Percussion, AP Music Theory, Advanced Composition and Beginning Piano/Theory. He also directs the Hinsdale South Marching Band, Jazz Bands, Pep Band, and Pit Orchestra.
