Mr. T.L. Williams – BMS Band Director

Mr. Williams has been a member of the Brooke County Schools Family for over 20 years. He served as Follansbee Middle School General Music / Chorus Director from 1998-2013 and Band Director from 2013 to 2018. Currently he serves as the BMS Band Director.


Mr. Williams has a creative teaching style that allows the students to have input in the overall operations of the band. His students have weekly meetings on Fridays, led by representatives that have been voted into office. Mr. Williams guides these meetings, but the students have input into the music, concerts and other activities that are performed. He believes this method allows the students to be held accountable to their own choices as well as provides a vested interest in the overall program; therefore, the overall class motivation and discipline of his program has been very successful.
