Dr. Timothy L. Dailey as new high school Band Director
Grant County Schools is most pleased to introduce Dr. Timothy L. Dailey as the new Director of Bands! Dr. Dailey comes to us with outstanding credentials that speak for themselves – but most significantly upon the recommendation of trusted friends and colleagues in the band family, including Mr. Bob Gregg (Harrison County / Williamstown, retired), Mr. Bob Elliott (Grant County / Ryle), Mr. Rob Bryant (Madisonville-North Hopkins, retired), and Professor W. Dale Warren (North Hardin, Ky / University of Arkansas). To them we extend our sincerest thanks.
Dr. Dailey is a recent graduate of the University of Cincinnati – College Conservatory of Music (CCM) where he earned his doctorate of Musical Arts in Trumpet Performance. He did his undergraduate work at the University of Kentucky earning dual Bachelor of Music degrees in Trumpet Performance and Music Education, and received his Master of Music in Trumpet Performance from the University of Arkansas.
Dr. Dailey’s marching band experience is extensive, starting with his own high school career at Mercer County, Kentucky, then membership with the University of Kentucky Marching Band, and both the Madison Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps and the Phantom Regiment Drum and Bugle Corps. Additionally, Dr. Dailey has held various leadership and/or instructor roles over the past nine years with Paul Laurence Dunbar, Eastern High School, Madison Central High School, Beechwood High School, Ryle High School, and more.
His ensemble and orchestral experience is equally, if not more impressive, with extensive participation in multiple jazz and wind ensembles, symphony and philharmonic orchestras, as well as noteworthy placement in numerous competitive and festival events. In 2011 he was the featured soloist with the CCM Philharmonia Orchestra and was the recipient of the International Trumpet Guild Conference Scholarship.
Instructionally, Dr. Dailey student taught under Mr. Tom Brawner at Scott County High School, has served as a graduate assistant and private instructor both at the University of Arkansas and CCM, and has worked in the high school setting as a private teacher and trumpet/brass clinician. His leadership experience includes service as the assistant conductor for the trumpet ensembles at both the University of Arkansas and the College Conservatory of Music.
For the past couple seasons, Dr. Dailey has worked as an adjudicator for Kentucky Music Educators Association events, and is, consequently, even familiar with Grant County’s 2013 marching band show – having judged it just this past weekend at Beechwood. (He placed us 5th of six in Music Performance, so we can only assume he’ll be working on that!)
Dr. Dailey’s wife, MacKenzie, is also a band enthusiast. They met in 2007 while both were working with Paul Laurence Dunbar’s band – he with the trumpets, she with the guard. She is currently a teacher at Ockerman Elementary in Boone County. They are expecting their first child in early 2014.
We are so proud of the resilience and determination demonstrated by our band students, and the outpouring of support provided by our band parents. We are very fortunate to complement this dedication with leadership of such high caliber. Please join us in welcoming Dr. Dailey, and in providing encouragement and support as the Grant County Band completes their successful 2013 season!
