About Mr. Search

  • Hello and welcome to all of my music students!  I graduated from West Chester University in 1992 and have been teaching music here in Great Valley ever since.  Whew!  At GVMS I direct the Generals Band, Blue & White Band, Jazz Band, Holiday Winds, Pep Band, Parade Band and I also teach 6th, 7th & 8th grade general music classes.  In addition to teaching music, I enjoy playing trombone with various ensembles and bands in and around the Philadelphia area including the Chester County Pops Orchestra.  In activities outside of the music department I enjoy DJ'ing our school dances, co-sponsoring the Great Valley Ski & Snowboard Club, and helping with the 7th Grade Henlopen Outdoor Education Program.
    On a personal "note" (...no pun intended) my wife, Ann Search, teaches math on team 8A, coaches 7th grade girls LAX, sponsors the NJHS and together we run the GV Ski & Snowboard Club.
