Oral History Information
Marc Johnson was a band director for 27 years and in retirement felt he could help the younger generation of directors. While working for Mississippi Music as a school road rep, Marc has been able to do just that. With his knowledge and understanding of the struggles and concerns of the band director, Marc can provide advice as well as instruments and accessories to keep the school programs successful. Marc moved to Mississippi in 1969 and attended Delta State with a focus on music education. His first teaching job began in 1978 and was a wonderful experience. The school was in Senatobia, where he stayed for six years. Marc is proud of the fact that several of his students have gone on to become band directors themselves.
