Across the Cherry Creek School District, high school marching bands are finding new ways to make music and generate school spirit, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

Born and raised in Colorado, Keith Farmer has been a music educator in the state for over 20 years. A graduate of the University of Colorado Boulder with a BME and VanderCook College of Music with a MME, Keith gained his first teaching experience in the rural community of Elizabeth, bringing the music department into a new building and helping to hone the skills of those students.
Following this time, Keith moved firmly into the Denver metro area as the first band director at Rock Canyon High School and Rocky Heights Middle School. After setting a precedence of excellence in this school, Keith moved onto Grandview High School as the Director of Bands, a position he has held since that time.
At Grandview, Keith has enjoyed superior ratings for both his concert bands and jazz ensembles. His Wind Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble I have both performed at the CMEA conference among many other national and international engagements. As a catalyst for positive change, Keith has implemented new programs including a Wolf Pride Marching Band designed to foster student leadership skills. In addition, his leadership has been recognized as the Co-Coordinator of the Performing Arts Department since 2009 and the Grandview Teacher of the Year in 2016.
In addition to his duties in school, Keith is engaged with national and local music education organizations in a variety of roles. He has served on the council for the Colorado Music Educators Association as well serving as the Western Regional Representative for the American School Band Directors Association.
