Saxophone / Clarinet
Christopher Lennox has been a part of the Cherokee County community as a freelance saxophone instructor for the past 10 years and graduated Reinhardt University in 2015 with degrees in saxophone performance and music education. At an early age, music became an integral part of his identity, and his dedication only increased from his role as the principal alto saxophonist of many symphonic, jazz, and marching ensembles throughout the years. His passion also led to the formation of student led saxophone chamber groups both at Flowery Branch High School and Reinhardt University. Wanting to share what he felt, Chris realized community outreach should be an integral part of performance. He’s had the pleasure of volunteering his time for the community by performing at events including nursing home tours, holiday tours at the Governor’s Mansion, local city celebrations and food festivals aimed to raise money for band programs and charity organizations.
While attending Reinhardt University, Chris not only fostered his passion for performing, but discovered a love for teaching while taking on many opportunities during his undergraduate attendance. Because of teaching private lessons, heading up sectional masterclasses, and working band camps with many schools across North Georgia, he knew he wanted to make a difference through music education. After graduating from Reinhardt University, Chris continued to professionally teach young musicians, and since 2015, has held the position of Woodwind Caption Head for the Etowah High School Marching Eagles. Every student deserves an individualized approach when learning, and Chris plans to provide that differentiated approach.
