About Mr. Larson

I began at both the Bluffdale and Draper campuses in 2014, but am now full-time at Draper. I was involved in band through junior high and the first part of high school, but switched to choir in my Sophomore year. I have had the opportunity to perform or workshop with some amazing musicians in my life including Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Eric Whitacre, Z. Randall Stroope, and more. I went to SUU for my Bachelor's and recently finished my Masters of Music Education at the same university. Outside of performing, I enjoy composition, travel, hiking, camping, computers, and more. My wife and I were married in 2014 and are always going on new adventures!

Don't forget that this semester we have started using a rubric for weekly call-ins. After you call in, fill out your rubric and turn it in. This will help me understand your call in so I can help you even more. Rubrics are due the same day as call-ins.


Hello all!
There have been some issues lately with connections between the school internet and Google. Because all call-ins go through Google Voice, I have not been able to access or grade anything this week. I have confirmed that all call-ins are still coming in regularly and that only my access to the page is limited. Please bear with me as the school works to resolve this issue.
PS: Please note that this does not affect the time that assignments are due.

Remind 101

Hello everyone,
I've begun to use the Remind 101 app. You or your student can use it to sign up for updates about the class. This will mostly consist of reminders to turn in practice charts, call in practice tests, or other similar items of business. This is completely optional and is meant to help students be on top of their assignments from the class. You can sign up by sending a text to the number 81010. The text depends on what class you would like to sign up for:

Band                @summitbnd
Orchestra        @summitorc
Choir                @summitchr
Guitar               @summitgtr
Guitar II             @summitgtr2
For example if I wanted to sign up for choir it would look like this:
To: 81010
