Sam Wise

Band B.A. Utah State University

Sam Wise is a graduate of Utah State University where they received a Bachelor of Music. They majored in Music Education with an emphasis in band. Sam was born in South Carolina but moved to Sandy when they were 6 and have been playing the trumpet since they were 9. In high school they decided to also learn to play the baritone and tenor saxophone. This sealed their fate as a future band teacher, as they now felt the need to learn to play every instrument. In their time as a trumpet player, Sam has played in many different ensembles such as: concert band, jazz band, symphony orchestra, pep band, marching band, and pit orchestra. Sam also loves musicology, specifically the history side of things, and will happily talk about it for an unreasonably long time. In their spare time they enjoy spending time with their dog, Lilo.
