Ms. Combs-Cawley

Welcome to Band!

Hello! My name is Becca Combs-Cawley and this is my 7th year at Stewartville Middle School.

I am in my 11th year as an educator, having worked in Fort Wayne and Nashville, Indiana; at Cotter High School in Winona, and at Eveleth-Gilbert Schools, in Minnesota. I have taught general music, band, choir, and even spent a year as an Outdoor Educator.

I am a 2007 graduate of Butler University, Indianapolis, Indiana. While there, I majored in Music Education. As a tubist, I played with the Butler University Athletic Bands, Concert Band, and Tuba-Euphonium Ensemble. A few of my favorite performance opportunities were playing in St Petersburg, Russia with the Butler Concert Bands; at NCAA Men's Basketball Tournaments with the Butler Basketball Band; and playing in numerous Tuba-Christmas and Octuba Events.

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy playing music (tuba, guitar, ukulele, and singing), camping, biking, and hanging out with my dog, Danger. I currently play with my rocking brass band, Loud Mouth Brass, with several other musicians in Rochester. I also play in the Rochester Community Band, Rochester Civic Band, and I help conduct Austin's Annual TubaChristmas.
