About Mr Sanchez

About Me
My name is Victor Sanchez and I have been teaching for 25 years in the Rio Grande Valley. Music has been a passion of mine for many years and it is what inspired me to teach my love of music to my students. I graduated with a BA and a MA from the University of Texas - Pan American, and have become an accomplished trumpet performer here in the Valley. I have performed with such stars as Donna Summer, Harry Connick Jr. & Sr., Jerry Lewis, Don Rickles, Julio Iglesias, Myron Floren, the Tommy Dorsey Big Band and other numerous groups locally. 
I also enjoy photography and have won awards with the Valley Land Fund Photo contest. You will see me and my camera at some games, but almost always at the band events, documenting the student’s achievements. (Contest and trip photos below)
I have a wife, Ana, and one son, Gabriel, who are very supportive with everything I strive to do. I have high expectations for myself and my students, always willing to help my students to achieve success.
