Daniel Perez selected as head band director

Daniel Perez, a returning music educator, has been selected for and accepted the position of Head Band Director at Clovis High School.

 Director of Bands for Moriarty high and middle schools and Edgewood Middle School, Perez returns to Clovis Municipal Schools with a record of award-winning successes and stellar program development.    

Hired in 2015 as choir director for Gattis Middle School, Perez has spent more than half of his career with Clovis Schools, transitioning to band director at Yucca Middle School in 2017.

In 2018, Perez became director of the CHS Jazz Band, CHSFA Symphonic and Concert Bands, Basketball Pep Band, and was an Assistant Marching Band director at Clovis High School, where he remained until taking a position with Moriarty in 2020.

Perez holds a Master of Arts in Music from Washington State University, and is an Eastern New Mexico University alumnus, where he earned a Bachelor of Music.

The legacy of Clovis Municipal Schools music and band programs extends nearly a century, providing generations of Clovis students the opportunity to participate in a rich history of superior tutelage and performance.

Perez will assume the position at the end of the school year, a transition marked by the retirement of William “Bill” Allred, who has led the marching band to 15 state championships and helped to cement the district’s highly-regarded music programs.
