Dear band students and families,

I am extremely excited for the upcoming year and I would like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Alex Moore and this is my fourth year of teaching and my second at Casa Grande Middle School. I have spent the two years teaching band, choir, and general music at Colonel Smith Middle School on Fort Huachuca, AZ. Prior to working at Colonel Smith Middle School I attended Bradley University in Peoria, IL where I received my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education in May, 2014. I am an active member of the national music fraternity Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia and the National Association for Music Education (NAfME).

My goal as a music educator is to effect the lives the students through music and to help them develop into independent musicians and young adults. I sincerely hope that those students who are participating in music leave school with their musical experiences as one of the highlights of their day and their time at Casa Grande Middle School.

One of the elements I will work to create is an open and consistent line of communication with parents and students. To help with with this I post a lot of information to my website in addition to emails and sending physical material to parents and students so that everyone receives the information they need to know. Class websites can be accessed by going to or by going to the Casa Grande Middle School Homepage, selecting “staff directory”, choosing music department, and navigating to the desired website.

I can’t wait for the year to start and to get to know all of the students and families at CGMS! If you have any questions feel free to contact me at or at (520) 836-7310.


Mr. Moore
