Hello everybody! I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself as I have yet to meet all of you.  My name is Ben Jervis.  This year I will be teaching 5/6 brass at Discovery, 7/8 band at EMS, and I will be assisting at EHS.  I’m really excited to be here and start working with your students.   A little bit about myself, I was born and raised in Garden City.  In the fifth grade I started playing the trumpet (and a little bit of baritone).  When I was in eighth grade I started playing in jazz band and that’s what really got me hooked on music.  After graduating from Garden City High School, I studied at Wichita State.  I graduated from WSU with a degree in music education and a degree in jazz studies in 2011. While finishing up at WSU, I taught at Pratt Community College for a year.  My previous position was teaching 6-12 band in the Anthony/Harper/Chaparral school district where I taught for 3 years.  My wife is also a music teacher.  She teaches preK-5 music at Oatville Elementary School in the Haysville school district.  We have a four year old daughter Ellie. 
I’m really looking forward to starting the year and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions at all.
