Mr. Patrick O'Keefe

I am very excited to be here at Absegami this year.  For the past 9 years, I have worked as the Instrumental Music teacher at Smithville School in Galloway.  Other involvement prior coming to Absegami includes working for the Shawnee HS Marching Band, at Stockton University teaching lessons to music majors and minors, as well currently serving as Past President of South Jersey Band and Orchestra Directors Association and President Elect of New Jersey Music Educators Association.  I'm looking forward to a great year!


  • Congratulations to our Marching Braves for their 2nd place finish at Chapter Championships!

  • The Absegami Band program encompasses several performing ensembles, as well as academic courses such as Music Theory.  All courses are designed to provide a well rounded music education.
