Selena Maytum currently lives in Baltimore, Maryland where she serves as a horn player in the U.S. Army Field Band. Before joining the Army, Selena was a band director at Loveland High School in Loveland, CO and Spartanburg High School in Spartanburg, SC. She was a member of the 2008 Japan Touring Cast of Music Motion Theater’s Odyssey, the Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra, the Southern Indiana Wind Ensemble, and marched mellophone with the Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps from 2003 to 2006. She has participated in the National Repertory Orchestra, Orford Summer Music Academy, and Hot Springs Summer Music Festivals and has performed with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, ProMusica Colorado Chamber Orchestra, Spartanburg Symphony Orchestra, Symphony Number One, and numerous regional ensembles. Selena earned her Doctor of Musical Arts degree at the University of Colorado, her Master of Music Performance degree at Indiana University, and her Bachelor of Music Education degree at Furman University. A passionate music educator in the drum corps world, Selena has researched the effects of mellophone playing on French horn playing. She recently commissioned the composition of what (we assume?) will be the first Concerto for Mellophone and Wind Band! In addition to teaching at The Cadets for a number of years, she has previously worked with Jersey Surf and the Oregon Crusaders. She is very excited to be returning to teach the 2020 edition of The Cadets!
