Career Highlights

During his 30+ years as a music educator in Texas, Benny Davis was fortunate to have the opportunity to teach in several outstanding school districts where he benefitted from the knowledge and experience of his colleagues who are still considered to be among the best educators in the country.  This, combined with the experience of working with some of the most outstanding students in Texas, resulted in a rich and rewarding career as a Texas band director.

This is dedicated a few of the most rewarding events and performances and to the students and professional colleagues that made them possible.
