Mr. Patrick O'Keefe

I am very excited for my third year at Absegami.  Prior to teaching as part of the Greater Egg community, I worked as the Instrumental Music teacher at Smithville School in Galloway for 9 years.  I received my Bachelors in Music Education from the Hartt School at the University of Hartford, and have done graduate work at Boston University and The University of the Arts.  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 the President of New Jersey Music Educators Association.  I'm looking forward to a great year!
