My name is Mr. Szabo, and I am one of the music teachers at John McCrae S.S.

I currently teach the instrumental music classes, and I conduct the junior concert band.  I also direct the jazz program which includes the Jazz Orchestra and school combos.

I studied music at the University of Ottawa with Eric Rupp where I obtained a B. Mus. degree.  I also went to teacher's college at the University of Ottawa.  During my studies I performed with several musical ensembles including the University of Ottawa Wind Ensemble, the University of Ottawa Orchestra, the University of Ottawa Jazz Ensemble, and the Calixa Lavalee chamber choir.

Since graduation, I have remained active as a performing musician.  I am currently the music director for the Barrhaven Community Concert Band.  I have previously been a member of Ottawa Based acapella choir, Harmonic Generation, jazz / pop fusion band Trumped!, the Kingston Grenadiers and the Ottawa Chamber Orchestra.
