Patrick Horner is a native Alexandrian and has been privately and in local school districts for over a decade.
Patrick fell in love with music as a young student in Alexandria City Public Schools.
That love grew as he participated in various jazz, symphonic and marching ensembles.
Patrick took that passion and channeled it into his studies at Howard and George Mason Universities, graduating with a degree in Music Education.
Patrick has taken the phrase "work hard, play hard" since his time in university.
During the day he teaches band in ACPS elementary schools. After the bell rings, Patrick plays drums with several local bands.
