Mr. Alden Ford
I am the director of bands here at Slocomb High and Middle School. My responsibilities include teaching band classes in grades 6-12, overseeing the "Pride of the Tribe" Marching Band and conducting the Slocomb High School Symphonic Band. I was born and raised nearby in Enterprise, Alabama, where I graduated from Enterprise High School in 2013. Upon graduating high school I attended Troy University, where I earned my bachelor's degree in Instrumental Music Education (P-12) and was a member of the Troy University Symphony Band, the Trojan Brass Ensemble and Brass Quintet, and the "Sound of the South" Marching Band in which I served as a section leader and band Vice-President during my tenure. I also was a member of both the Kappa Kappa Psi Honorary Band Fraternity as well as Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and served on the Executive Council in both organizations.
I am going into my second year of teaching here at Slocomb.
