Todd Baker

The Racer Band has been my professional home since the Fall of 2011. Previous to Newcastle I had a 19 year career teaching at 3 rural schools in Texas. In the summer of 2011 I moved to Oklahoma and married my wife, Mamie Sprinkle-Baker, who is an assistant band director in Chickasha, OK.
It is a daily privilege to be in front of the amazing Newcastle students and helping them find their way through the process of musical expression. Since 2011 the High School Racer band has almost doubled in size and we are anticipating our band will continue to grow in the future. The Racer Band is an OSSAA competition band that participates in Fall marching competitions and Spring concert and solo/ensemble contests. All students who wish to be a part of the Racer Band can contact me to discuss what their options are. Our doors are always open to new and motivated students.
Please feel free to contact me by email or phone any time.
