MR. ARBRAHAM ARMENDARIZ
Mr. Armendariz currently serves at Alexander High School as the Head Choir/Mariachi Director and as the Avant Guard Instructor. Mr. Armendariz' goal is to help his students discover themselves through musical and artistic expression along with instilling an appreciation for the fine arts.
Born and raised in Laredo, Texas, Abraham Armendariz began his love for the fine arts at Christen Middle School. After performing competitively with the Martin High School Band, Mariachi and Color Guard, Mr. Armendariz went forward to pursue a degree in Music at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.
While at TAMUK, he held the position of Color Guard Captain for the Javelina Marching Band, Piano player for the Wind Symphony and performed in countless ensembles including the piano accompaniment project, Kingsville Orchestra and the Javelina Mariachi. During his time at TAMUK, Mr. Armendariz spent his summers performing and marching with Revolution Drum Corps as part of their color guard.
It was his love for the marching arts that took his teaching into the school system and gave back to his University community by being on the guard staff for the Javelina Marching Band as well as surrounding schools of Banquette, Refugio and Callalen.
