Rick Paswaters - Choir Director
Mr. Paswaters is our Choir Director at Wagner Middle School. Having been in education from 12 years, he brings a plethora of knowledge and experience and has taught subjects such as H.S. Choir, H.S. Orchestra, H.S. Piano Lab, H.S. AP Music Theory, H.S. Guitar, H.S. Contemporary Band, and Middle School Humanities. His educational background in education is deep as he holds degrees in Masters of Music from Azusa Pacific University and a PhD (ABD) from Northcentral University.
Mr. Paswaters is most excited about joining Wagner Middle School because he loves helping students discover their musical talent and helping them develop their musical understanding and experience to the fullest. He works towards creating lifelong musicians who are able to enjoy their creativity and musicality for the rest of their lives.
Outside of teaching and learning, Mr. Paswaters enjoys walking, hiking, pickleball, table games, reading, exploring new places, and, most of all, spending time with his wife, their kids, and grandkids. He and his wife have six grown kids along with seven grandkids! They moved this past summer from Castle Pines, Colorado to Round Rock in order to be near two of their children and their families.
