    I am Tony Munsterman, music teacher for Campbell-Tintah Public School.  I have been teaching music for 26 years, with my first teaching assignment in 1984.  French horn and guitar are my two primary instruments .  I have done extensive singing throughout my career (primarily with church groups.) 
    I graduated from Augsburg College, Minneapolis, Minnesota with honors (cum laude) and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in music education.   After 12 years of teaching, I attended St.Cloud State University, St. Cloud, Minnesota for a Masters in Conducting.  My wife, Brigitte (trombone player, singer) works for Northern Contours in Fergus Falls, MN.  My children Bailey (sophomore-piano, bass guitar, french horn, singer,) Christa (7thgrade-clarinet, piano, saxophone, singer) both attend Campbell-Tintah Public School.  My son, Alexander (french horn,bass guitar, singer) will soon return to college, majoring in computer science and participating in college music groups.
    In 1979 I was accepted for the Minnesota Music Educators Association All State Band.  In 1998 I was accepted as assistant principal horn for the College Band Directors National Association Honor Band.   I have worked with marching bands, jazz bands, taught music theory, music history, history of rock and roll, supervised student teachers, taught summer lessons, taught string lessons, directed flute choirs. I have frequently conducted pit orchestras for musicals.  I have directed church choirs, bell choirs and church brass groups.  I have directed and played with numerous community bands. I have judged large group and solos and ensembles contests.  I have occasionally acted in plays throughout my career.

    For the 2011 through 2013 years I was the president of the Southwest Minnesota Band Director’s Association (MBDA.) Prior to that I was secretary of SWMBDA and had performed the duties of section coach on several occasions.
