McCarty preps musicians for annual showcase

 

 

by Estevan Encinia and Michaela Perez, UHS Journalism

When someone asks Uvalde High School jazz band director Darren McCarty if he has big enough feet to fill the previous director’s shoes, he answers, “Well, I think he took his shoes with him.”

While it can be difficult to follow a successful act, McCarty has made the transition flawlessly. His predecessor, Mark Lyon, developed an outstanding high school jazz program. McCarty joined the UHS band program before Lyon.

“Mark Lyon and I were a great team. We were on the same page when it came to interpreting jazz and teaching it. He is also a top-shelf player, with a deep blues influence – which is my favorite kind of player. He had a high regard of my ability, and I worked tirelessly to try to earn that respect.”
