Mr. Frankie Pineda


My name is Frankie Pineda and this is my second year teaching band at Middleton Middle School. Prior to this I taught 5th grade band for 2 years in Boulder Vally School District and taught 5-12th grade band for three years in Lexington,Nebraska alongside two other directors. For my undergrad I attended Boise State University where I performed on the Blue Field playing clarinet for 4 years and played saxophone in Symphonic Winds and Jazz Band. I earned my masters degree in music education and cognate in Jazz saxophone performance at the University of Colorado Boulder. I then decided to make my way back home!

During my free time I enjoy practicing and performing my saxophone. You can also find me geeking out over video games and Marvel movies/shows. I also enjoy fishing, and going on hikes!
