MHP - New Instrumental Music Director

Schools and Libraries

June 30, 2015

From: Madeira City Schools

It is a pleasure to announce that the Board of Education approved Mr. Casey Layer as the next instrumental music director for Madeira City Schools this week.  Casey will replace Kevin Engel, who resigned in June. 

For the past two years Casey has been the band director at Marion Local and has also been an assistant director.  Mr. Layer's experience, combined with an impressive audition directing the band, left him as the frontrunner for the position.  The interview committee, consisting of community and music booster members, administration, students, and music staff, all agreed that Casey will be a dynamic leader that will build strong student relationships and lead the band to new heights. 

Casey will begin working with the band next week in preparation for the Madeira 4th of July Parade this coming Thursday, and begin final preparations for band camp starting in late July.
