Hello My Name Is...
James Silvas Chavez
I have been at Lamar Elementary School for 7 years and EPISD for 15 years. I teach general music and have previously been assigned as a band director with various schools throughout El Paso.
While attending the Peabody Conservatory of The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, I performed as a clarinetist with the Peabody Conservatory Opera. I have also performed with the Annapolis Opera, The Phoenix Bach Choir, and the United States Naval Academy Band at Annapolis.
I enjoy teaching your children and seeing their response to music, especially in preparation for the regular PTA performances they present. I look forward to working with each and every one of them this school year. If you have any questions please contact me here at the school.
