Mr. Brent Barnes

I am excited to be the choir director at Harrison Intermediate School! This is my 4th year at Harrison and 12th year as an educator. I previously taught music in Garland ISD for eight years and served as the assistant director of the 5th grade GISD Children's Chorus. My wife, Lindsay Barnes, is the Director of Choirs at Burnett Junior High. In our spare time, we stay busy teaching private piano lessons, serving at our church, and raising our three boys, Hudson, Henry, and Hugh. I love teaching students to sing, read music, and perform as artists. Witnessing my students grow in their confidence and skill is the best! It is a pleasure to serve the Wylie community!
