Director of Bands/Elementary Music Teacher
Greetings. My name is Kevin Ryks and I have taught band for 26 years. I will be entering my sixth 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. We are definitely doing great things with more to come. Our Senior High Band has received Superior ratings at the MSHSL State Music Contest 4 years in a row. A Northeast Range first!! Our Senior High Band traveled to Orlando, Florida in the Spring of 2016 (next trip planned for 2020). While there, we participated in the OrlandoFest Music Festival. Our Concert Band received 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!
