Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Gary W. Schumann
I Graduated from Olivet Nazarene University in 2013 with a Bachelor’s of Music with an emphasis in Music Education. I have studied/played percussion for close to 48 years specializing in Marching. I started marching in parades when I was 6 years old with the Nisei Ambassadors Drum & Bugle Corps out of Chicago. Since then, I have taught with many Junior High Schools, High Schools, Drum & Bugle Corps, and College Band programs throughout Southern California, Northern Illinois, and Wisconsin.
As the son of a professional singer, my vocal background started at an early age as well. In Junior High I had a teacher who inspired me to continue singing and by the age of 17 I was conducting the youth choir at my church.
I have been married for 33 years to my lovely wife Destinia. We have 2 sons, Charles and Kendall, and 2 Grandchildren, Sawyer and Levi. In my free time, I like to ride my motorcycle, fish, watch movies, and spend time with my family.
