Hector Cortez

Welcome to Memorial Middle School Band.  I am your band director Mr. Hector Cortez.  I have been teaching band for over 23 years, and just started my 19th year here at MMS.  I am the primary instructor for beginner flutes, trumpets, French horns, trombones, baritones, and tubas.  In addition to beginner classes I conduct the Symphonic and Concert bands at MMS.  Since the age of 11 my first love has been the trumpet, which I continued to play while earning my bachelors degree in 1997 from Lamar University in Beaumont Texas.  In 2008 I earned a masters degree in Educational Management from the Universtiy of Houston-Clear Lake.  If you were to ask me, "What kind of music do you like Mr. Cortez?", my answer would be, "My musical tastes are varied and constantly expanding depending on my mood."  I want students participating in the band program to feel welcomed and supported here, and hope to instill in them a feeling of fellowship with their classmates.
