Mr. Jim Shulstad

I have 19 years of teaching experience, including middle and high school band, middle school chorus, elementary general music, college level music, and private lessons.  I am an active musician in the area, and I compose and arrange music for various ensembles.  I hold music degrees from Florida State University, the University of Tennessee, and Bemidji State University.  My wife is a music professor at Appalachian State University.  I enjoy the outdoors, antique tractors, and cooking good food.
