Hello My Name Is...

Stephen Elford


Greetings!  This year marks my seventh year as the Music Director at Hancock High School.

I have a Master of Arts in Music Education from Truman State University in Kirksville, MO.  At Truman, I assisted with the University Athletic and Concert Bands, including the award-winning Statesmen Marching Band and Bulldog Basketball Pep Bands.

I am a member of the Missouri Bandmasters Association, Missouri Choral Directors Association, National Association for Music Education, Pi Kappa Lambda Music Honor Society, Phi Mu Alpha Music Fraternity, and Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society in Education.

At HPHS, I teach Band, Concert Choir, AP Music Theory, Guitar, and Piano Keyboarding.  I also lead the Basketball Pep Band, Marching Tiger Parade Band, and direct the Spring Musical.  I also work on staff with the Lafayette High School Lancer Regiment.

I enjoy traveling, Diet Dr. Pepper, watching movies with friends, playing RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, and spending time outdoors with my Great Danes, Bella and Lucy.
