About Mr. Royal
I am so glad to be back at Stuart Middle School for the 2019-2020 school year. I am overwhelmed by the growth of this program and the amazing support we receive from our administration, families and community.
I taught middle and high school band in Kansas for the first 7 years of my career. I moved out to the Denver area in the summer of 2014 to enjoy all of the great outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. I have both my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Music Education from the University of Kansas, and I am a die hard Jayhawk fan.
