Mr. Morris



My name is Dave Morris.  I have been married to my beautiful wife for 12 years, we have 4 children(1 girl and 3 boys) and two dogs Piper and Christie.


I am a native of Visalia and attended Conyer Elementary, Divisadero Middle School, Mt Whitney High School (Class of ‘95).  I continued my education at College of the Sequoias where I received my Associate of Arts in Fine Arts.  I then attended California State University, Chico where I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Music Education in 1999.


I began my teaching career in Farmersville CA in 2000, teaching Elementary, Junior high, and High School Band. I taught in Farmersville for 9 years before moving to Tulare Western High School where I was the Director of Bands for 6 years.  


During my time at Tulare Western I went back to school and earned my Masters Degree in Music from the American Band College in 2014.  

Through the process of earning my masters I felt a draw to return to the beginning and intermediate band level and help young musicians grow and learn to become better musicians. I am excited to be a part of the music team here at Burton School District serving the campuses  SCA Lombardi, SCA Mathew, and W.R. Buckley.
