Mr. Sean R. Jenkins

Mr. Jenkins has been the Director of Music at Magnolia JHS since the fall of 2002.  Before that, he assisted the previous director Mr. Perry A. Hall from 1992 until the spring of 2002.  His duties included brass and marching instruction.  Since 1992, the Magnolia Music program has developed a reputation for musicianship and performance at a standard well above their grade level.  This is a tradition that has continued under the direction of Mr. Jenkins with ensembles consistently earning high marks and superior ratings at concert festivals.

Mr. Jenkins received his training at the University of Southern California, earning a B.M. in Music Education in 1996, Single Subject Teaching Credential in Music (with SDAIE and CLAD),  and a Master of Music Education in 2007.  He has been working on a Doctor of Musical Arts in Music Education at the University of Southern California.

While at the University of Southern California as an undergraduate student, Mr. Jenkins participated in the Trojan Marching Band. He performed as a member of the Tuba section in addition to being selected as the Drum Major for three seasons.  In 2002, he was asked to return part-time to the Trojan Marching Band as a Teaching Assistant in the Tuba section.  Since then his responsibilities have expanded to assisting in the writing and instruction of drill for halftime shows.
