Mr. Turner

Hello! I am Daren Turner and I am the Music Teacher at East Lake Elementary. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Music Education from Jacksonville State University. My primary instruments are piano and trumpet and I have been playing both since I was in 6th grade. In addition to teaching Music at East Lake, I am an instructor with the marching band at Union Grove High School as well as a brass instructor at Ola Middle School. In my free time I enjoy spoiling my cats, cooking, and gardening.

I look forward to what this school year has to offer and cannot wait to make some music!
