Mr. Blake Bodie
Welcome to SMS Band! My name is Blake Bodie, and I am the Band Director at Saraland Middle. I am originally from the Mississippi gulf coast, where after high school I came to Mobile to attend the University of South Alabama. During my time at "South" I was in countless ensembles, from jazz band to opera chorus.
In my class and rehearsals, I hope to teach your child a valuable talent that they can bring with them into their future.I am excited to work with your children and help them not only be the best musicians they can be, but also the best versions of themselves.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I can’t wait to get to know you and your musicians and to watch them progress as the rest of this year goes on.
