Mr. John-David Struckmann

Hello everybody! How do you do! Let's make music today!

I'm the general and vocal music teacher for Belfast Central School in Belfast, NY. I just started teaching at BCS, but I have almost 30 years experience as a music teacher in four different states. Most recently, I taught in Houston, TX, where I taught K-8 vocal, general and instrumental music. I also taught high school jazz band. Here in Belfast, I teach K-6 general music and 3/4, 5/6, 7/8 and 9-12 choirs. 

I grew up in Niagara County, NY outside of Lockport. I was very active in bands and choirs at Roy-Hart CSD. I am so excited to be back in Western New York and closer to my family. Go sabres! Go Bills!

When I'm not teaching or making music, I enjoy reading, hiking, fly-fishing and spending time with my family. I also enjoy building things and renovating the pre-1920 house we bought in Belfast. I have visited over 50 units of the National Parks system.
