Ken Narducci, Director of Wind and Percussion Studies

Ken Narducci joined the La Sierra University music faculty in 2006 as Director of Wind and Percussion Studies.  In addition to directing the Wind Ensemble and Big Band, he teaches courses in conducting and theory, and coaches brass and woodwind chamber groups. Graduating with a BMus in trumpet performance from Pacific Union College in 1980, he went on to the University of Oregon on a graduate teaching fellowship.  There he played with the faculty brass quintet, wind ensemble and orchestra, taught undergraduate trumpet majors and brass methods courses, but gradually shifted emphasis to music theory and literature, earning a DMA in Music Theory in 1989.  Beginning in 1982, he taught at Pacific Union College for 25 years, and was recognized with the local and national Zapara Excellence in Teaching Awards in the humanities in 1990, and the Pacific Union College Educator of the Year award in 1995.  He played trumpet regularly with the Napa Valley Symphony, but has more recently pursued the horn where and currently plays with the Moreno Valley Wind Symphony and LSU ensembles/brass quintet. He is married to Julie, an elementary music education specialist and fellow Zapara recipient, and who is La Sierra University’s Director of Alumni Relations.
