Mr. Dallas Dees

Hello!  I am the Head Band Director at Maypearl ISD.  I grew up down in Corpus Christi, TX and went to school at Texas A&M University, Kingsville.  After graduating in December 2010 I was a substitute teacher in the Corpus area before becoming the JH Assistant band director at Luling ISD in August of 2011 where I taught beginning band, JH and HS band, college readiness, and math.  I came to Maypearl as the Assistant Band Director in 2012.  As the assistant director, in addition to band at Maypearl ISD, I taught tech apps, MS choir, HS choir, MS theatre, general music, decoding, and lego robotics and was the academic UIL coordinator for two years for 6th-8th grade.  I also took the MS OAP to competition and assisted with the HS OAP.

In July 2016 I was hired as the Head Band Director at Maypearl ISD.  The band program is continuing to grow in both size and quality - this next year we should have the largest MS band (7th and 8th grade) that we have seen in Maypearl since 2012.  The MS and HS band are both continuing to steadily climb in performance ratings each year - just this last year we had the most HS students advance to the UIL State Solo-Ensemble contest in 8 years.


If you have any questions about the band program, please e-mail me at ddees@maypearlisd.org or call the HS band office at 972-435-1038.

Welcome! I am the Assistant Band Director for Maypearl ISD - and I also teach Junior High Theatre. I have lived in Texas for just over three years, having lived in Idaho, Utah, and Minnesota in the past. While in high school, I participated actively in choir, band, and theatre, as well as some art. I attended Utah State University, where I received my BA in music education. Upon graduation, I accepted a fellowship to study at the University of Minnesota, where I earned my master's degree in music performance. I also had the privilege of teaching with the Roseville and St. Paul school districts.
