Associate Director of Bands
A native of Arizona, Ms. Frost received her BM in Instrumental Music Education in May 2008 from Arizona State University where she was in several performing ensembles including the Wind Symphony, chamber ensembles, brass quintet, trumpet ensemble, and the Sun Devil Marching Band. While in college, she taught trumpet privately in the Phoenix area as well as supervised the visual programs at several high schools in the Valley.
Ms. Frost has been involved with the DCI activity for fourteen years now. She began her drum corps career as a soprano soloist with the 2001 CooperStar from Gilbert, Arizona and was a member of the Santa Clara Vanguard from Santa Clara, California from 2003 to 2006, aging out of DCI as the 2006 I&E Trumpet Champion.
Following her time as a member, she began teaching in 2007 as an intern with the Vanguard A Corps, as well as devoting some time to the Velvet Knights Drum and Bugle Corps as a visual instructor. In 2008 and 2009 she joined the brass staff at the Blue Stars from LaCrosse, Wisconsin as the trumpet technician and Breathing Gym specialist. Starting in 2010, Ms. Frost joined the brass staff of the Madison Scouts from Madison, Wisconsin and has been with the corps ever since.
In the Fall of 2008 Ms. Frost had the special opportunity of traveling to Japan to be a professional musician, playing both trumpet and piccolo trumpet, for the “Odyssey” stage production. The show was an all-female cast of percussionists, dancers and brass musicians sponsored by the Min-On Concert Association, a Japanese organization that believes music is the universal language, promoting cultural exchange and peace by introducing music and performing arts from every country around the world.
Prior to her time at Vista Ridge, Ms. Frost taught in Georgetown ISD for five years, two as the assistant director at Georgetown High School and three as the Director of Bands at East View High School. Much like Mr. Christian, Ms. Frost had the incredible opportunity to start East View from the ground up in 2011. While at East View, Ms. Frost helped the program receive superior ratings both on the marching field and concert stage.
Ms. Frost joins the Ranger Band Family with lots of enthusiasm and excitement and looks forward to continuing the excellence that is well established at VRHS!
