Mr. Benjamin Loomer
Welcome to Orchestra! My Name is Ben Loomer and this is my first year at Jackson Middle School as the new Orchestra Director! I just moved this summer from the San Francisco Bay Area in Northern California to be closer to family here in San Antonio. I have been teaching Band and Orchestra for the past 13 years in the San Ramon Valley ISD, primarily at Stone Valley Middle School. I earned my Bachelors Degree in Music Education from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California in 2007. My wife, Meridee, and I have been married seven years and have a two year old son named Liam and one black cat named Puck.
When not teaching, I enjoy bike riding with my family, watching Sci-Fi shows/movies, or dabbling with my RC Cars. I look forward most to the opportunity to push reset (post-pandemic) and get back to my first love; making music with my students!
