Having known Darrell McCune for 25 years, I can without hesitation recommend him as a music teacher for kids.  Not only has Darrell taught music in the public schools, he has also directed children’s choirs in churches over his long career.  He exhibits enthusiasm for music and for its performance, he shows respect for every child, and he demonstrates great patience when kids are “just being kids”.  From his vast experience teaching elementary through high school, he is able to recognize and develop musical talents in each student.  You can trust Darrell to bring out the best in your student’s musical abilities.
