Beyeler shares her passion for music with local students

Sarah Naeve Coleridge Blade LAUREL — Passionate, energetic, selfless, and caring are just a few words to describe Laurel-Concord-Coleridge Middle and High School Band Director, Patti Beyeler. Now that marching band season is in full swing, these qualities are once again front and center as Beyeler begins her 16th year of teaching local students. Beyeler grew up in Dubuque, Iowa. She discovered the love of music in second grade when she started taking organ and violin lessons.

“Both of my sisters got married that year and I needed something that was just for me, “said Beyeler. She graduated from Saint Joseph’s Catholic School after attending first through eighth grade. She enjoyed her high school years at Wahlert Catholic High School in Dubuque where she played the oboe in concert band, the electric guitar in jazz band, and was a baton twirler in marching band. One of her fondest memories in high school was receiving a superior rating at the Iowa District Music Contest. Beyeler wears black and gold proudly as a graduate from the University of Iowa with a bachelor’s degree in music. As a Hawkeye she played oboe and English Horn in concert band and electric guitar in jazz band.
