Director of Bands/Elementary Music Teacher
Greetings. My name is Kevin Ryks and I have taught band for 23 years. I will be entering my fourth year teaching at Northeast Range and I absolutely love it. The staff at Northeast Range is very concerned about teaching the whole student and not just the basics. Music is a high priority at Northeast Range and I feel very privileged to be a part of a something great at Northeast Range. Our Concert Band received Superior Ratings at the State Music Contest last Spring. This was the second year in a row for Northeast Range. A Northeast Range first!! We are definitely doing great things with more to come. Our Senior High Band travelled to Orlando, Florida in the Spring of 2016. While there, we participated in the OrlandoFest Music Festival. Our Concert Band got first place for Class A schools!! We received a wonderful trophy and plaque. We also performed at Disneyworld and participated in a workshop which resulted in a wonderful trophy and certificate. This trip was a first for any of our groups at Northeast Range. We are all very excited about the opportunities that lay ahead!
