Ryan Stahle, Director of Bands
Welcome to our band's website! I am a 1992 graduate of MHS! I went to college at the University of South Dakota where I completed a music education degree in 1997. I started my teaching career in the Waterville-Elysian-Morristown district south of Minneapolis. Soon after finishing my first year teaching, I became the assistant director at Farmington High School (Minneapolis suburban school district). In 2000, I left teaching briefly to work in the tech industry in Sioux Falls. In 2003, I moved back to my hometown of Mitchell and have been the director of bands at Mitchell High School for 20 years. I am the director of the SDHSAA South Dakota All-State Jazz Band, Band Chair for the South Dakota Music Educators Association, president of the South Dakota chapter of Phi Beta Mu (music fraternity), and a member of the South Dakota Bandmasters Association. My groups at MHS have traveled to New York City in 2005/2011, San Francisco in 2007 and Disney World in 2009/2013/2017.
I have been married to my lovely wife Nicole 24 years and have two awesome kids - Hunter (junior pharmacy major at SDSU) and Atlanta (freshman at SDSU). I also have two black lab dogs named Cooper and Chloe!
