Mr. Andre Womack
Mr. Womack is a Kansas City native and just moved to Phoenix with his fiancé this past summer! Before moving to The Valley, Mr. Womack attended The University of Kansas and graduated with a Bachelor of Music Education degree in 2019. As a saxophone player, Mr. Womack played in virtually every band ensemble at KU (athletic bands, concert bands, jazz bands, etc.) and served as Drum Major of the Marching Jayhawks for three years. After graduating, he spent the next two years as the Instrumental Music Director at Roosevelt HS in St. Louis.
Mr. Womack cannot wait to get started as the new Band Director at Cactus Shadows! He is looking forward to making great music with his students and sharing it with the community. Go Falcons!

My Educational Philosophy
Music is more portable and more omnipresent than ever. This almost constant exposure to music has led to an increase in passive listening. One of my goals as a music educator is to teach my students skills associated with active listening so they can appreciate any type of music at a higher level, if they choose to.
My process of evaluation is not to compare students to each other, but rather to evaluate a student's progress from the beginning of the term to the end. When my students leave this program, I hope they look back on their time feeling elated and proud of their accomplishments. If their appreciation for music spreads to their peers or future generations, then I have successfully done my job as a music educator.
