HCMS BAND - Chuck Fischer
Hi! I am Mr. Fischer and I am the associate band director at HCMS. I have taught band in Eanes ISD for 18 years. I teach all of the beginning brass and percussion classes as well as the HCMS Concert Band.
And also yes, that is me playing on Ringo Starr's drumset from the 2006 All-Starr Band.
I have spent my career as a music educator in Eanes ISD. I have enjoyed working with the HCMS band, the WRMS band, and the WHS band as well. I am also an active performing musician here in Austin, TX. You might see me playing in the orchestra pit at Bass Concert Hall, swinging with the Mr. Fabulous Big Band, being creative with the Golden Hornet Project, or just having fun playing rock and roll at any of Austin's great live music venues. I have been very fortunate to get to play with such names as Willie Nelson, Shirley Jones, and Bobby McFerrin, as well as opening for acts like Bob Newhart and Jay Leno.
Teaching kids how to play music well is what I love to do and working here in Eanes ISD I know that I will always be blessed with some of the best and brightest students. Teaching kids the art, craft, and skill of music is great fun and I always look forward to seeing what each year has in store!
My wife, Valerie is also a musician. She teaches and plays the cello. She can be heard on the soundtrack for the Richard Linkletter movie "Bernie." We have our own little musician in the making, Marlo who is 8!
