This academic year, Flagler College welcomed Clint Weinberg, adjunct professor of applied voice and pep band director, to our faculty. Since joining us, he has made major progress in the music department by heading the new pep band and coaching voice students to victory.

In addition to working a full-time job in Jacksonville, Weinberg commutes to Flagler to work with our music students. The pep band, established in the fall, is composed of musicians at a variety of levels, including those who have not played in a while and students who graduated from performing arts high schools. He also coaches the voice students and has already successfully guided them to competitions.
Weinberg’s hard work has allowed the new music minor to flourish since its introduction in the fall. The pep band is now 17 members-strong, working together to build a repertoire of music and a community of musicians. His voice students competed in the regional conference in January for the National Association of Teachers of Singing. Because of this win, Flagler College will go to the tri-state regionals in May for the first time in its history.
“It is my belief that the discipline associated with musicianship serves as a gateway for developing skills in creative expression, aids in cultivating a strong work ethic and helps us to learn how to work collaboratively with others,” said Weinberg on why he chooses to work in music.
He encourages any students interested in pep band to join for an opportunity to make lasting friendships, embrace school spirit and create music. For more information, contact him at CWeinberg@flagler.edu.Tagged As
