Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Mr. Short. I am an only child who was born and raised in Houston, Texas. My parents enrolled me in piano lessons at the age of five and guitar lessons at the age of twelve. In high school, I was in involved in choir as well as a member of the Texas Music Educators Association All State Choir in 1999 as well as the jazz band lead guitarist at Dobie High School.
I have a bachelor's of music from the University of Houston with emphasis on vocal performance, conducting, theory, and orchestration. While performing with First United Methodist Church of Houston, The Houston Symphony Chorus, University of Houston Symphony Chorus, and my rock band, I have toured many states and countries as far away as Tokyo Japan. Additionally, I have composed several independent film soundtracks, been involved in composing for video games, and owned a recording studio.
I have taught 5th and 6th grade at Sam Jamison Middle School for the last nine years and am very excited about year ten! 2017-2018! My wife, Callie, and I reside in Pearland and are the proud parents of an 12 year old weimeraner named Nayru and a 8 year old boxer named Heidi.
