Assistant Director (MB)
William “Andy” Houston is a general elementary music teacher at Kilgour School in Cincinnati, where he also conducts vocal choirs and hand chime choirs. Simultaneously, Mr. Houston serves in a wide range of instructional and design capacities at Dixie Heights (his wife’s alma mater) where he has held the Assistant Director title since 2010. After aging out of the Cavaliers (Rosemont, IL) in 2000, Houston staffed and directed for the Marion Cadets; he was a visual instructor for Blue Stars (LaCrosse, WI), and he marched, designed and directed for Cincinnati Tradition. Houston’s academic credentials include Bachelor’s degrees in Music Education as well as Music Performance (Northern Kentucky University). He holds a Master’s in Curriculum & Instruction with a teaching endorsement for Gifted Intervention Specialist from the University of Cincinnati. And presently he’s completing requirements for a Master’s in Music Education from Campbellsville University. Did we mention he’s also a freelance drill designer and music composer/arranger? To the amazement of his wife and three young kiddos, Andy still finds time for hiking/backpacking, Amateur Radio, and even a little reading.
