My name is Mr. Bupp and I direct the bands at Spring Grove Intermediate School, Spring Grove, Paradise, and New Salem Elementary Schools, and assistant High School Marching Band Director. I also coordinate our Summer Music Program and direct our award winning High School Percussion Ensemble. This is my ninth year of teaching and seventh with the Spring Grove Area School District. I graduated in 2007 from Mansfield University with a bachelor's degree in Music Education and Percussion. In 2011, I graduated from Boston University with a master's degree in Music Education. I also pursued post-graduate studies in administration at Duquesne University. I hold certifications from the Pennsylvania Department of Educataion in Music Education K-12 and Music Supervision.When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy teaching private percussion lessons and performing locally with the Twin Rose Band for which I am the assistant conductor and staff arranger. I enjoy spending time with my wife (also a teacher!) our son, Max and two cats, Stewie and Mozart.
