Hello! My name is Mr. McClintock, and this is my second year teaching music at Sto-Rox Upper Elementary School. Although I am relatively new to the Sto-Rox School District, I have been teaching music in other schools since 2011. I received my bachelor’s degree in Music Technology from Duquesne University in 2003. Shortly after that I began teaching guitar lessons at a local music shop. I quickly realized that teaching music was my passion, and I decided to return to Duquesne to acquire my teaching certification. 

When I am not teaching, I generally spend my time exercising, riding my bike on the Montour Trail, and creating music mashups for my YouTube channel. I also enjoy spending time with my wife and two kids.
