GaryBeaner1

Gary Beaner retired from NMS last month after 13 years of leading from the front of many school concerts. Most of us are more familiar with his back, watching him from behind as he led the kids in multiple musical and choir performances at school concerts and festivals.

Gary joined the school in 2006 as a primary and music teacher. He grew up in the USA where he developed a passionate interest in music. He was known at NMS for both his quiet, sensitive and polite demeanour, high standards and impeccable manners, as well as for his constant efforts to impart to our kids a passion and joy for music and singing. For many years he taught Music and Choir, in addition to offering Choir and Musical AGs. His performances were always well attended and enjoyed. The kids got a lot out of it and were encouraged to stretch themselves in choir rehearsals and performances, but the overall feeling most took away with them was a sense of joy and fun for music.

Gary was extremely well known and liked in the community and he was often seen being greeted by many parents on festival days and on the street.

Gary gave his time willingly for after school activities and concerts. As Choir Director he led the children in performances at the South African Embassy in Berlin and in annual Christmas concerts at the Indian Embassy. He established links with schools abroad and for many years took the choir to New York City and the East Coast to perform there. The NMS community would like to wish Mr Beaner all the very best and thank him for his years of musical passion at NMS.
