Hello, my name is Peter Thompson. I am a band director and the creator of Amplified Warmups. I have taught the last fourteen years in the Ames (Iowa) school district – for a few years as high school assistant, for many years as lead 6th grade instructor, and currently as the lead 8th grade director.
My passion is to connect as many students as possible to a successful and fun band experience. While doing that, I am constantly developing systems to try to make things work better and more efficiently.
My wife Holly and I met in band, and our four children love music, too. My other favorite things include running, sunrises, coffee, and breakfast (morning people FTW!).
