About Me

Erik Cavazos, Head Director- I graduated cum laude from the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) with a bachelor's degree in music education and a certificate of performance in violin- my primary instrument.
 In 2014, I began working at Tejeda Middle School in North East ISD. Throughout my time at Tejeda, the orchestra program grew from 68 students to over 100 and was consistently awarded superior ratings at UIL Concert and Sightreading Evaluation and music festivals in Dallas, Houston, and Corpus Christi. The 2019-2020 school year will mark my first year as Head Orchestra Director at Alamo Heights High School. 
In addition to teaching orchestra, I am also the founding director of the UTSA Guitar and Orchestra Camp and the conductor of the Sinfonietta Orchestra with the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio.  

Professional affiliations include Texas Music Educators Association (TMEA), Texas Orchestra Directors Association (TODA), and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia National Fraternity.
