Education: B.S. in Music Education from University of New Hampshire; M.ED Integrated Arts from Plymouth State University
Distinguishing Honors: Ernie Mills is a dedicated music teacher from rural New Hampshire. His Oxbridge students have gone on to study at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music, play alongside Peter Erskine, and perform at Sunfest and Rib Round Up. Ernie has led Oxbridge’s Jazz Ensemble to perform at the Berklee Jazz Festival, and he has presented at the Florida Music Educators Association’s Teacher Conference.
Classes Taught: Jazz Ensemble, String Ensemble, Wind Ensemble, Rock Band, and Intro to Performing Arts.
As a music teacher, it is my belief that all students, regardless of physical or intellectual ability, should be offered the opportunity to discover and explore their potential as musicians, and to increase these natural capacities through formal music instruction.
