Hello! And welcome to Dwyer Middle School! My name is Mr. Reyes, and I'm looking forward to being your band and/or choir teacher! Please reach out if you have any questions about our music programs. Thanks!

reyes family picMr. Reyes has always aspired to be a music teacher ever since he was twelve. He majored in Music Education and received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Eastman School of Music. An avid pianist and conductor, he has performed as a soloist at Carnegie Hall and has conducted many ensembles of varying professional levels. Mr. Reyes has performed as a low brass player for various wind ensembles, and has sang as a baritone for several choral groups throughout his musical career.

His first five years as a credentialed music teacher was spent in an inner-city school district in Rochester, NY. He’s since shared his passion for music with students of various ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, empowering them through music-making! He found himself a great match with HBCSD after moving from New York to California in 2015. He initially taught at Eader and Smith elementary before moving full-time to be the music director of Dwyer Middle School’s bands and choirs. Since 2016, he’s led Dwyer’s Vocal Ensemble (formerly Chamber Choir) to three consecutive all-superior ratings in their vocal and sight-reading performances for their SCVA festivals (2017, 2018, 2019), a first-place finish with gold ratings in their 2019 Heritage Festival, and earning three consecutive invitations to perform at the CMEA All-State Choral Festival (2019, 2020, 2021). He also co-conducted Wind Ensemble (Dwyer's advanced band) when they received all-superior ratings in their SCSBOA Festival of 2017.

Outside of teaching, he enjoys spending time with his wife & daughter, picking up new illusions as an amateur magician, and watching Manchester United Football Club games.
