My name is Nathaniel Kroshus and I am the Band Director for the Hot Springs School District! I graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN in 2005 with a Bachelor of Music Theory and Composition. I then continued my education and graduated from the University of Minnesota, Mankato in 2009. I have been teaching for 6 years now. My first teaching position was teaching General Music and Music Technology at the RiverBend Academy in Mankato, MN. I then worked teaching General Music and Band for New Public School District #8 outside of Williston, ND.
The Hot Springs Band Program has grown a lot of the last 3 years. We have grown from 80 students in band district wide to 147 students in band district wide. The are several ensembles that students can participate in. We have a 5h grade band, 6th grade band, 7th grade band, and an 8 - 12 grade band. We also have a pep and a marching band, with hopes of creating a jazz band soon.
