Symphonic Band, Music Education


Dr. Wiggins is an Assistant Professor of Music Education and conductor of the Symphonic Band at Western Connecticut State University. He has taught, performed and conducted music for twelve years, with players and students ranging from fifth grade through the doctoral-level, and adults in community and religious venues. Trained as an instrumental music educator, conductor and orchestral bassoonist, Dr. Wiggins has spent the majority of his career teaching bands, but has also worked in orchestral and choral venues, and performed as a freelance and orchestral musician. Dr. Wiggins has managed comprehensive band programs at middle and high schools for nine years, including chairing scheduling and curriculum development committees for a school of 1,100 students and 50 faculty. He has taught undergraduate and graduate students for five years in areas of large and chamber ensemble performance, teacher training, conducting, and athletic bands.

He is an active participant in the profession, presenting professional development clinics, managing regional solo and ensemble festivals and disseminating original research via national and regional presentations. His latest project: Analytical Research on Wind Band Core Repertoire, catalogs, categorizes and disseminates known research on band repertoire held in the highest esteem, and addresses issues of unequal coverage and accessibility. Dr. Wiggins holds a PhD in Music Education from Florida State University, a MM in Wind Conducting from the University of Memphis, and BM’s in Orchestral Bassoon Performance and Instrumental Music Education from Arizona State University.
