Lincoln Middle School
Teacher – Band
My name is Mark Pomplun and I am originally from Appleton, Wisconsin. I attended Lawrence University where I received my Bachelor of Music Education in June of 2008. After graduating, I traveled to LaCrosse where I have spent my years teaching. I am in my 10th year in teaching. In 2012, I received my Master of Music Education from Boston University.
When I’m not teaching in the school setting I am a La Crosse Youth Symphony Orchestra low brass and horn coach. I also teach private trombone and horn lessons.
It is my greatest wish that all of my students have a new found love and appreciation of music. I also strive to teach all of my students a new skill of playing an instrument, being part of a team, learn self discipline through practice and performances, and use creativity and critical thinking skills on a daily basis. This not only helps students develop as musicians in our band program, but it also helps them develop into productive adults.
