Ben Waltz
Mr. Waltz is in his tenth year of teaching with experience at both the junior and senior high school levels.  Originally from Ohio, Mr. Waltz completed his BM Music Education at Anderson University and completed his MA in Music Education at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN.  In addition to singing, Mr. Waltz grew up playing piano, trumpet, and French Horn; and he was active in musical theater programs at school and in the community. 
Choirs under Mr. Waltz’s direction have found many different forms of success.  He has directed groups that traveled to New York, Washington, DC, and most recently to Beijing and Shanghai.  In 2012, Mr. Waltz’s 7thand 8th grade choir was invited to perform for the Indiana Music Educator’s state conference.  Mr. Waltz has presented at conferences on topics such as rehearsal techniques and repertoire and in 2016, Mr. Waltz was selected to conduct the Indiana Junior High Honor Choir in Ft. Wayne.
In his spare time, Mr. Waltz enjoys running (has completed two marathons), cooking, and spending time with the cutest dog in the world:  Griffin.
