Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Tim Clemmons
I have been employed by the Cullman City School System for 35 years and by the Department of Defense of Dependent Schools in Zweibreucken, Germany for 2 years. I studied music at the University of North Alabama and earned a B.S. in music education. I completed a Masters of Music Education (choral emphasis) at Jacksonville State University.
Composing music is a passion of mine. I write music for television shows and film trailers. I have had placements on American Pickers, Pawn Stars, The Voice, Simpson's Trailer, NBC Promo, and many more. I also love teaching students about the great composers and seeing their excitement as they learn "cool" facts.
All fourth grade students will begin a unit on the recorder next month. The Alabama State Music Course of Study requires instruction in melodic instruments. Each child will need a recorder that can be left in the music room for the entire school year. At the end of the year, however, students will take them home. If your child has a recorder, he/she should bring it to me before I place the order. I want to make sure it is in good condition. Your child will not be purchasing a tape recorder. This is an authentic instrument as shown above.
If you need to purchase a recorder, please send $5.00 in an envelope like the sample below. We need to have all money collected by Wednesday, August 31st. Contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
