Welcome to Band!
Welcome, my name is Ottie West and I am very happy to join the Yellow Jackets this year! As a native of the Smyrna-Murfreesboro area, I am very excited to be back home. Before coming to Whitworth, I served as the music director at Blanche School in Taft, TN for 3 years where I instructed PK-5 general music, middle school band, and choir. Prior to beginning my career in education, I attended Tennessee Tech University where I earned my Bachelors in Music Education and performed in the world renowned TTU Tuba Ensemble. I look forward to starting this new chapter with you all, and please do not hesitate to contact me with anything I may help you with.
