About Mr. Love

If you only want the dorky me, just watch the video below (or click Meet Mr. Love). I apologize in advance.

If you only want teacher me, skip the video and read below.

If you want the "real" me (a dork who really loves his job), do both.



Hi there!

 

I would like to take a moment to tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Greg Love and I started my journey to becoming a band director as a student at A. C. Reynolds Middle School. I joined the band as a seventh grader in 1987 after attending Bell Elementary School. Back then, the band room was where the main office is now!

 

The first noises I made on the trombone weren’t very good, but they allowed me to scare my little sister. That kept me interested long enough to learn how to make good sounds and to discover the true joy of making music! When I was in eighth grade, I came home and announced to my parents that I was going to be a band director when I grew up. I’m pretty sure they figured it was just the latest in a series of interests, but here I am.

 

Under the direction of Bill Bryant, my high school band director, I became serious about studying and performing music. Under his guidance, I was accepted to a number of honors bands where I was lucky enough to work with and learn from a number of different band directors. This just solidified my career path. Upon graduating from A. C. Reynolds High School in 1993, I headed to Mars Hill College where I earned my Bachelor of Music Education degree.  

I began teaching in Robbinsville, NC in 1997. I spent the year teaching band to students from fifth to twelfth grade as well as teaching a music enrichment class for special needs students. In 1998, I was able to return home to Buncombe County as the band director at Erwin Middle and High School. In 2003, I received the opportunity to return to A. C. Reynolds Middle School where my love of music began. I couldn’t help but jump at the chance! I am blessed to be a part of the school and community that helped nurture me as a student and a musician and I look forward to teaching students in our area about the joys of music for years to come!

 

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my wife (who teaches English at A. C. Reynolds High School) and two daughters (an eighth-grade trombonist and a junior tuba player). We also have quite a menagerie that consists of two dogs, a rabbit, and a ball python! I can often be found reading, hiking, camping, cooking, or killing too much time on my cell phone. I am also still a pretty good trombone player and can twist a mean balloon animal!

 

I look forward to meeting you!

This is my family. We take life VERY seriously.
