Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Kevin Sevigny
Hello, I am the music teacher at Micro Elementary. I have taught some type of music class in Johnston County since 2001. I began teaching orchestra which led to a position teaching middle school band and general music in grades K-8. I have worked with high school orchestras and bands in Smithfield and Micro. And, since 2006, I have taught general music to students in grades K-5. In 2015, I started the first elementary beginning band program in Johnston County Schools. In 2018, I had my first All County Band member in the elementary band program. I am originally from Yorktown, Virginia. I graduated from Tabb High School in 1996 and finished my Bachelor of Music Education degree in December of 2000 from West Virginia University. (Let's go Mountaineers!) In 2010, I earned my National Board Certification. I am married to Melissa Sevigny and have two boys (Aidan and Isaac) and one girl (Ella).
Being a musician has given me opportunities I would have never had otherwise. Because of my participation in various groups, I have performed in Toronto, New York, Anaheim, Tuscon, Boise and Miami. I have been either on the court or field at several professional and collegiate ball parks during performances in Marching Bands or Basketball Pep Bands. I received a Performing Arts Scholarship to attend WVU. I made hundreds of friends and eventually met my wife in band. I have been a part of Wind Ensembles, Brass Quartets, Jazz Bands, Tuba Quartets, Orchestras, Church Choirs, Praise Teams and several other community groups. I have learned that hard work pays off, it's never a bad time to get better at something, and personal improvement comes through good habits and rarely happens quickly. None of this would have been possible if I had not had a chance at a quality education in music and I am forever grateful for it.
It is my goal to help students be able to have opportunities such as these in their life by teaching them, not only music education, but how to approach improving all aspects of their life through goal setting, study, and practice.
I am in awe of those parents who have the ability to support the many interests of their children and I thank all of those who give me a chance to be an influential part of their child's life.
Thank you for supporting music education at Micro Elementary and beyond!
