Music At Shriver

Scott Shepherd

Last year Scott Shepherd retired from the US Navy Band after 24 years of service.  He was a trombone player in the fleet bands for 12 years  and a sound technician for the DC Band for the last 12 years.  He earned his Bachelors degree in Music Education from Appalachian State University.

This year in music he will be encouraging the students to learn to feel the beat, learn different note values and patterns and react to music.

Examining different styles of music he hopes the students leave his class with a greater appreciation of the different genres of music.

Cielito Lindo

To commemorate the bicentennial of Mexico’s Independence, Banamex (Mexico’s National Bank) rearranged the emblematic song “Cielito Lindo” and went on a tour all over the country to record it with the collaboration of amateur musicians representing every region of its wide territory. This is what happens when a whole nation sing united as one voice to congratulate each other from the heart.
