Kevin Shultz

My name is Kevin Shultz! I am currently in my 11th year of teaching and I am thrilled to be opening the Iowa Colony Choir Program!

I was born and raised in a small southeast Pennsylvanian town called Downingtown, roughly an hour outside of Philadelphia. At a young age, I was inspired by an elementary teacher, Mr. Vilbrandt. He gave me the time of day when no one else would, and it left a big impact on me. From that point forward, I wanted to provide to others what Mr. V provided me, a safe space to learn and feel accepted. I learned because I felt accepted.

While in high school, I fell in love with singing. I began to make the connection between the security I felt in elementary school with Mr. V and the vulnerability required to make music. This was the classroom I would identify with for the rest of my life.

I attended Penn State University (We Are!) and graduated with a Bachelor's in Music Education. After college, I was ready to explore the nation and land somewhere warm. This led me to teach high school choir in Bakersfield, CA for three years. After, I left the dry warmth of Central Valley CA for the humid warmth of the Gulf Coast. I taught choir at Alvin High School for a year, before continuing to Manvel High School for the last six years. Although I loved being at Manvel, I was ready to...blaze my own trail.

I perform professionally with Houston Cantare, a 16 member chamber ensemble. In the rest of my time, I enjoy watching Football, playing video games, and working on the lawn. I am married to Leah Short, the Manvel Theater teacher! Together we have plenty of pets at home that keep us busy. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, regarding the choir program.

Here's to a great year!
