Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School

Mr. D.J. Stout » Welcome


Welcome to Mr. Stout's personal page! I am in my second year at Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School and my fifth year teaching. I am excited to be here and feel so fortunate to be in such a great school! 
This year, I am teaching beginning band, jazz band, and general music here at Buckhannon-Upshur Middle School. I am also the coordinator of Project ISAAC, an after-school program designed to help students increase their academic achievement and grow a positive relationship with the community. For more information on Project ISAAC, click here. 
The main objective in general music is to expose the students to as many different musical cultures as possible. We will also explore technology and how it can assist and enhance learning various musical concepts and the connection between music and other disciplines, such as geography, science, math, and more.
Beginning this year (2017-2018), we will be using the online curriculum Quaver. Each student in general music will have a unique Quavername and password. There's even an app called "QStudent" which allows students to explore all that Quaver has to offer on their personal device at any time!
