Leander Middle School, Leander ISD
Grant Easdon is a proud graduate of Texas Tech University!
Currently, in his third year of teaching, Grant serves as the head choir director for Leander Middle School, located just north of Austin, Texas. Living in Austin, Grant is involved with a number of choirs and organizations, but is grateful that the Texas Tech University All-State Choir Camp keeps him connected to Lubbock and the university. During his time in Lubbock, Grant sang with the Texas Tech University Choir, the Matador Singers, was an apprentice conductor of the University Singers, and played saxophone in the Goin' Band From Raiderland. Serving as a choir camp counselor throughout his time at Tech, Grant has now worked for our choir camp for seven years! Acting as the Activities Director for choir camp is always the highlight of Grant's summer! Wreck 'Em! #livetosing

While attending Texas Tech, Ms. Kozinski was a member of the Texas Tech Women's Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Carolyn Cruse, as well as an apprentice conductor of the University Singers.

Ms. Kozinski was honored to be one of only two female conductors to make it to the semi-final round of the ACDA-Southwest Undergraduate Conducting Competition, and represented Texas Tech at the March 2016 Convention in Kansas City, Missouri.
Upon earning her degree, Ms. Kozinski began her music education career in Killeen ISD, and now resides in Plano, TX where she is the associate choir director at Renner Middle School. When she is not music-making in the classroom with her students, Ms. Kozinski is an avid hiker, traveler, and swimmer. Being a counselor at the Texas Tech All-State Choir camp was the highlight of her summers during undergrad. Ms. Kozinski is excited to return "home" to Texas Tech in her role as Assistant Activities Director.
