About Mr. Keith

Education:  BM from Brigham Young University (Media Music) and ME from University of Florida (Music Education)

Family: Married to Ariana, 4 children, Jaxon (12), Kodee (10), Gemma (8), and Lottie (5)

Proudest moment: Competing as a member of BYU's Vocal Point (high tenor) and winning the ICCA (International Competition) at Lincoln Center in New York City (2005). It made me want to choose this as a profession.

Something you would do over and over again: Swim. All day, every day. I'm really 80% part Merman, 20% part human. Love to go hiking and on random adventures with my family. I also run a lot and want to keep running Marathons (two so far). Ariana and I love watching RomComs together, eating homestyle Popsecret popcorn, and taking long walks. 

Something you never want to do again: Get my appendix out or get stuck on the swinging ferris wheel at Disneyland. We almost died- no joke. (Not really but we were terrified). 

Favorite part about your career:  Seeing students who don't think they're enough, or do not have a lot of confidence become stars on stage. I love seeing them step into the light and own it with everything they have. I love the way music heals and changes people's lives- and I get to see it every day!

Sweet tooth: Jr. MInts, Dr. Pepper, Mt. Dew and Peach Rings have all been a problem at one time or another in my life.

Biggest dream:  I'm living it! I've always wanted to work at a school like ALA with competitive show choirs that compete regularly. I'm so excited to hop on board with this crazy ride. I'd also love to win a Grammy award one day for song writing- but that's dreaming dreaming:)
