Mark Sweat

I was born and raised in Huntsville, Alabama and graduated from Grissom High School. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Instrumental Music Education from Jacksonville State University and Master of Music degree from the University of Mississippi. While at Jacksonville State I was a member of  the Marching Southerners where I spent two years as the section leader of the trombone section and was voted the most outstanding trombone award during my final year. I was also section leader of the award winning pep band Hardcorps and was the bass trombonist of both the Jazz 1 ensemble ane the Chamber Winds, Wind Ensemble, and Symphonic Bands. After graduation I accepted a position as a graduate assistant with The Pride of The South, the marching band at Ole Miss. While at Ole Miss I was also a member of the Wind Ensemble, The Mississippians Jazz Ensemble, The Trombone Choir, and The L.O.U. Symphony Orchestra. 

I am excited to begin my fourth year at Terry and my first as the Director of Bands. Our goal is to continue to grow the band and create a positive environment that allows for all students to be successful. This is an exciting time for the Terry Band!

My wife Katie, who is also a band director, and I live in Pearl, MS. We are both active in community bands as well as teaching private lessons to members of the community.

I am looking forward to a great year and to meeting and working with members of the community.
