Mr. Rios

This is my 11th year teaching and all years have been at Jackson MS. I was the assistant director for 8 years and now I start my 4rd year as the Director of Bands. As well as teaching I perform as a professional musician.  I have been blessed to play in wonderful venues such as the White House for President Bush, The Kennedy Centy, and the The Hollywood Bowl.  In San Antonio I have performed with the San Antonio Symphony, the San Antonio Wind Symphony, and many other ensembles.  

Before music education I was dance instructor for the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Dance Program. 

I am married to Denise Rios who is a Nurse Practioner for the UT Health Science Center Department of Neuro Surgery ICU.  We have three kids, Ixchell 7, Anai 4, and Joaquin 2.  We are currently moving in the community of Castle Hills were we will be a part of this wonderful community!!!!
