Preparing for the brightest future, The Blue Crew provides unparalleled dedication and commitment to students and their variety of needs, passions and dreams.
The Blue Crew would like to extend a warm welcome to our new band director
Born and raised in Ramseur, NC Mr. Dickens is a true Randolph County citizen. After graduating from Eastern Randolph High School, Mr. Dickens obtained a Music Education degree from Western Carolina University (WCU).
After graduating from WCU in 2013, Mr. Dickens taught
middle school band students at WA. Pattillo Middle School
and Northwest Middle School. Mr. Dickens has always
exemplified a passion for music and compassion for students,
both of which have grown even more over the course of time.
A part of growth includes being involved in professional
organizations. Mr. Dickens’ professional affiliations
are the National Association for Music Education and
Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.
Mr. Dickens specializes in Instrumental Music Education.
He has received a plethora of awards including, but not
limited to the Sudler Trophy Recipient and the
Jim Ott Award. Mr. Dickens was also a member of
the Carolina Crown Drum and Bugle Corps. In addition,
Mr. Dickens was a part of the visual team with the
former Music City Drum and Bugle Corps and
Brass technician for Carolina Gold.
Mr. Dickens is elated to be a part of the Trinity High School
family as the Band/Choral Teacher. His teaching philosophy
is to help develop lifelong excellence in the students
through an appropriately challenging musical
education experience. Mr. Dickens seeks opportunities
for students to shine and endeavors to make a positive
impact in the lives of all students.
Mr. Dickens not only is passionate about his music,
he also loves his family. Recently married, Mr Dickens
enjoys spending time with his wife, Zaneta Dickens.
As time allows, hiking, camping, fishing, reading,
and hunting are also hobbies Mr. Dickens could
be found doing. Through it all you'll probably hear
an upbeat tune or two coming from them both
as their mutual interest in music blooms.
Mr. Dickens looks forward to growing with Trinity High School.
