Mr. Chris Henry
I came to Greensboro in 1998 to attend Greensboro College as a music education major. While in college I had the opportunity to start the band program at Bethany Community Middle School, a charter school in Rockingham County, NC. I have taught in Guilford County for 16 years. I was at Northeast Middle School for 10 years and am currently the band and orchestra director at Jamestown Middle School. I have had a private studio for about ten years in the Jamestown area and now teach privately at Music and Arts in Burlington. I perform weekly with the praise and worship band, Decided, at Jamestown Presbyterian Church, where I play guitar, bass, trumpet and sing. I also play the lead trumpet chair with the Greensboro Big Band! I have worked with The Ragsdale High School Marching Tigers for about sixteen years as music tech, brass tech, drill/show designer, and music composer/arranger. My wife, Elena, and I have three daughters, one each in middle, high school and college. I like the MCU, Supernatural, various anime, lots of different music, Pop! Vinyl (I have over 400) and can play just about any instrument. And, I love making music with young people!
