Duane Player

Assistant High School Director / Junior High Director of Bands

Hello! My name is Duane Player and I am a 1990 graduate of Talladega High School. I have a B.S. in Instrumental Music Education from Alabama A&M University and a Master’s of Music Education from Alabama State University. I have been teaching for over 20 years and take pride in the impact I have on helping students not only become good musicians, but helping them become great people! I love all kinds of music, but have a special fondness for Gospel and Jazz.

I am also an associate pastor at Mt. Canaan Missionary Baptist Church in Talladega. I am currently working on a Master of Divinity in Pastoral Studies from Liberty University. I enjoy spending time with my wife, Genesis, and my 5 year old daughter. I am excited about working serving as the junior high director and assisting at the high school.
