The Owl Music Story

Owl Music founder Bill McClanahan began teaching instrumental music classes in private schools in 1998 after working as a writer, editor, high school English teacher, and professional trumpet player. Over the years, he developed his own teaching materials to address the challenges of directing bands that meet only once a week. Those materials are published in his Owl Music method books.

He has a B.A. from UC Davis and an M.A. from Stanford University.
