Smith has been happily married to his wife Kim for fifteen years, and they are the proud parents of their eight year old daughter Ella and five year old son Alex.
I have always believed in my student’s ability. I faked my way through band class through my ninth grade year, and at that point one of my teachers really took an interest in my success. Therefore, I will always believe and work with a student that has the desire to become a better musician. I hope that when my students graduate they take with them a life long love of music.
