Meet the Director
Mr. Kevin Fields has a reputation of being known as a dynamic, young teacher with outstanding leadership that has guided many to admire and learn from his expertise. From the early years of his childhood, he has had the passion to teach and guide others, which only illuminated the path to being a well-rounded teacher. Since his seventh-grade self dedicated him to musical life, the conjoining growth of both humanitarian and artistic interests drove Mr. Fields to apply to, and graduate from, the Governor’s School for the Arts in Norfolk, VA and the Governor’s STEM Academy at Grassfield High School. After which, he earned both a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and his Bachelor's Degree in Psychology to accommodate such. Not only that, but he earned the state title of Collegiate President of the Virginia Music Educators Association. After graduating, he began work as the Communications Director for Virginia's Chapter of the American String Teachers Association (VASTA).
After acquiring these noteworthy titles, he advanced to become the orchestra director at Frank W. Cox High School and John B. Dey Elementary School, which was quickly secured and followed by his consistent "Superior" ratings at each assessment he applied his classes to. With such accomplishments came the notoriety of the Outstanding New Teacher of the Year, which was awarded to him after just one year of teaching. Meanwhile, he created VASTA’s website, notably awarded "Best Chapter Website" of the United States 2021, and co-founded Falcon to Falcon, a mental health movement for those who are in need of support from peers and faculty. Mr. Fields has shown constant and deliberate efforts to be a passionate teacher that provides a guiding hand for those who wish to achieve, and excel, the same degree of success he has.
